'Demons' is a short experimental film produced in collaboration with Miss O. 

Miss O is a Belgian-Italian pop-alternative music duo. Odette di Maio is an Italian singer-songwriter, and Jan De Block is a Belgian composer and producer. Odette's lyrics are about spirituality, dreams and connecting to other worlds, combined with Jan's delicate sounds – sometimes just the simplicity of piano. 


A young woman struggling with mental illness, watches her romantic relationship with a promising artist begin to unravel. Personified by her evil, other self, her mental illness becomes a barrier in their relationship. She seeks psychiatric treatment – attends therapy sessions, undergoes hypnosis and eventually shock therapy. Watching their relationship unfold like a film in an old theatre, culminates in a moment of lucidity, when the realities of her mental illness become apparent to both of them.
