THE DOCUMENTARY

WHAT

IS

THIS

DOCUMENTARY

ABOUT?

Things I Never Said follows the lives of four Asian Americans and their mental health journeys. Not only are we exploring the reasons why people choose to stay in isolation, but also how familial cultural differences and the model minority myth contributes to social and academic pressures put on Asian Americans. This story is also guided by a community art installation as a therapeutic release for our subjects as well as the local Los Angeles community to collectively share our mental health struggles.

WHY

IS

THIS

IMPORTANT?

With your help in making this documentary possible, we want to remove the stigma in mental health struggles and to create a more accepting environment for those who are suffering. We want to let everyone to know that there is no shame in seeking professional help and that they are not alone on their journeys.
