The world may seem grey, but a battle of darkness and light consumes each of us. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy.


We all have our own power struggle within ourselves; sometimes the struggle between darkness and light in the brain is too real. HENNA is an experimental short film symbolizing the struggle between darkness and light inside one women’s mind. Using the symbol of Indian Henna, traditionally representing life and light, we explore a deep struggle of darkness and death. One wrong step towards the darkness means we can lose the light forever. When darkness is the only way out, which side will you chose?
