HONOURS PERFORMANCE SERIES: SILENT TREATMENT
Written and Directed by Claudia Spadafora

"I felt everything, and I was ashamed.
And then I felt nothing, and I was ashamed.
And shame was all I felt."

Silent Treatment is a story of living with mental illness in a world that denies, invalidates, romanticizes and/or misunderstands. Little girls grow up being told they’re overdramatic, silly, or vain. Little boys are taught that having emotions make them weak, and that weakness makes them worthless. In movies and television, mental illness is used constantly in contexts of violence and amorality, where “crazy” people are villains or used for shock value. On the other hand, if our protagonist is mentally ill, we can rest assured that by the end, some girl with pink hair with love him hard enough that his depression will disappear. This is not real life. When these are the only visible and widely discussed examples of mental illness we have, it’s no wonder that so many people live under the burden of stigma.
