OCD: The War Inside

Top of page

They seem like ordinary people. They have no physical disabilities and appear as functional as the next person. But their lives have been shadowed by the crippling effects of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, a misunderstood anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts, nagging fears and ritualistic behaviour.

OCD: The War Inside documents the personal stories of several individuals who fight to survive a war inside their minds. Their stories reveal a deeper aspect to the disorder, which goes beyond the constant hand washing, door locking and other repetitive acts typically associated with OCD.

2001, 70 min 40 s
