The War Within by Hannah Grennell X Keeran Blessie

The War Within is a war of becoming. Loosely inspired by Freud’s The Ego & The Id, the story unfolds in a liminal space inside the mind. Three parts of the self - the Unconscious, the Self Conscious & the Aware Self, journey towards awakening. The Unconscious, leading by instinct finds freedom in the mind, but this is dashed by the Self Consciousness (an egoic part of the self), which subdues the Unconscious and begins to overwhelm the mind. This imbalance leads to the rational mind, the Aware Self, to rise up. Finally, all these parts converge to form a unitary self, in harmony, arriving at an awakening. A film by Keeran Anwar Blessie in collaboration with Hannah Grennell.
