Phoenix 2021/A Survival Guide revolves around depression and the struggle that a great deal of people undergo every single day in order to fight against it. The film identifies as the root of the problem the social taboos which entrap us into small boxes in which we all suffocate. The main character works at a very toxic environment that has nothing to do with what she wanted to be as a little girl. This leads her to antidepressants and the decision to put an end to her life. Will hope prevail in the end or it’s too late?
Directed by Stilvi Psilopoulou (Greece)
