Within an expanse of anxiety and faced with a false choice, a decision must be made. Decision is a short animated film that explores one woman’s experience with anxiety and how she handles a perceived false choice. The film was conceived as a film based on the experience of a single emotion, anxiety. The process of making “Decision” became an exploration into the director’s own anxieties and how art and filmmaking provide a channel for communicating such an experience.
