Edison is one of the patients of the Mental Health center of Huancavelica, the capital of the poorest region in Peru. Through his story, this short film tries to break the stigma that surrounds mental health in that environment, and makes families not to go to the center to ask for help.
I did this film for the NGO Médicos del Mundo, in order to help their cause around mental health in Huancavelica, Perú.
