Salt Lake

“Salt Lake” takes a bold and unique visual approach to represent the “experience” of complex mental illness and psychosis. The film is about a young woman, Leah, who, in the wake of an unprecedented tragic event, experiences a psychotic episode as she comes to grips with her trauma.

Our vision for Salt Lake is to give psychosis, and mental health more broadly, a strong and compelling cinematic voice. We have found that those who experience complex mental illness often can’t find a way to articulate that experience. They can feel isolated. Misunderstood. This doesn’t sit right with us. We want to do something about it by employing the power of cinema to help enforce change and to contribute to the vital ongoing public conversation about mental health awareness.
