Dis-sociated- A documentary by Clea Martin Vargas

4 years ago, my friend began having seizures. She’d lose all sense of self, all sense of time and space. For 2 years, doctors said she did not have a physical illness. Finally she was diagnosed with Dissociative Seizures, a medically unexplained symptom, thought to have a psychological basis.
In this documentary, I follow people living with the condition, and interview world leading experts. The aim: to shed light on the brain's most unexplored coping mechanism, dissociation.
