Turning Stigmas into HOPE (Healthy, Open, Positive Energy)
Pandora’s Dimension was born through our intense desire to fight the social stigma of mental illness in Singapore, where the topic is still considered “hush-hush” and taboo.
The film explores how a typical society views mental illness when they don’t understand it, the journey to recovery of one with mental health issues and the misconceptions that the public has about ‘treatments in a mental hospital which is often exaggerated in modern-day dramas.
Our film “Pandora’s Dimension” directed by SYAHIR JACK EZEKIEL RAFA’EE, a local film student in NTU ADM, aims to bring awareness to this issue of mental health in Singapore.
The creative team formed this film based on the interview with “Judy Zhuang”, our protagonist.
We hope to highlight that “early treatment is key to recovery”, and urge people to look out for their loved ones, while encouraging the de-stigmatisation of mental health issues in our nation.
