Vulnerability in everyday life

A recurring theme in my work is behaviour and how this can be in contrast with the subjective emotional experience. I’m interested in examining the conflict that arises when different forms of identity don’t coincide in terms of the way people see themselves, the way other people and society see them, and the way they present themselves.

Donna is a slice of life, coming-of-age fiction movie about the thirteen-year-old Donna who hides her personal identity to avoid the powerlessness she feels in relation to others. Identity develops in relation to a person’s environment. But what happens when the different social environments a person moves between don’t match and don’t share the same values, rules and understanding?
