LOGLINE : “Feeling The Apocalypse Is An Animated/Mixed Media Poetic Documentary That Shows How Psychotherapist Anderson Todd Struggles With Climate Anxiety And How He Stays Grounded In An Increasingly Fragmenting World.”
Anderson Todd, a 43 year old psychiatrist, has lived through many life threatening events. A child of the cold war, the threat of nuclear annihilation was an ever hanging threat over his childhood. This made him predisposed to anxiety about an apocalypse style wipeout event. As his life progressed, he became more aware of the repercussions of climate change. Visiting therapists himself, he ended up giving them anxiety rather than helping himself. He watched in horror as the glaciers in Greenland melted, televised for all to see. And it just kept happening; species disappearing, natural disasters, climate catastrophes televised for all to see, experiencing grief beyond comprehension. In his years of struggling, he found that the only way for individuals to grapple with the climate anxiety, was in a community. People must come together to support each other in times of need.
