Helen, by Esme Prior and Lydia Kenton, is a short film, created in order to raise awareness of Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD). This motion-capture short aims to convey themes of obsession, distress and isolation which could be generated by the disorder. The story unfolds as Helen finds herself mentally trapped, having locked herself away in the bathroom of a student house party. Taunted by her own reflection, Helen cannot see what others see as she tries to escape the body created in her mind.
