WHAT IS MIES ABOUT?
MIES is a short observing documentary in which the experience of Mies, a young female with a DD (dissociative disorder), is recorded through the eye without a soul, the camera.
A documentary made on intuition. Afterwards you realize that you took an inside view on the world of someone with DD. It makes clear how it must be to live alone with your own thoughts, but with many more thoughts than one. How does it look, the world of someone with mind illness? What do you do, when the voices that are wandering in your head are your reality?
In this documentary you see, observing and close to the skin, the answer to these questions.
TARGETS OF THIS DOCUMENTARY
As a documentarymaker I am trying to bring social, personal and individual story’s of people that aren’t seen in this society under the attention of others. This documentary has the next three targets for me:
To convert mental illnesses in pictures and to show understanding for the persons who experience these mental illnesses. To be unseen ill is a subject that may be told. A subject where people pass by too fast nowadays.
As a friend and documentarymaker I want to show Mies how strong and beautiful she is and that she is seen in this society.
As documentarymaker and good friend I think it is important to do everything to understand Mies. By making this movie, I am able to do this better and better, the camera connects us.
I will do my utmost to make something precious of this movie.
AMOUNT OF MONEY NECESSARY
What do we intend to collect exactly? To make this documentary we need € 7000,- .
Perhaps you ask yourself, where is this money going? The money goes to a good camera, soundsystem and post production. To take care that the sound is always good and the pictures are beautiful. It must be a camera that won’t be to big and heavy, Mirthe has to carry it for days and days without ruining her back.
The other costs are for transport, taking care of locations and other things. We try to collect € 5000,- through CineCrowd and besides that through organisations and foundations.
The more we collect, the more we can go to nicer locations: For instance, when we collect a total of € 6500,- through CineCrowd (€ 1000,- above the amount) we will be able to realise a scene in the swimmingpool. So even when this page is founded for 100%, the rest of the money wil take care of a more beautiful documentary!
