Hall of Mirrors by Andrew Koji

“Hall of Mirrors” is a short film that captures the decisive few days in the life of Basil, a young man who suffers from a mental disorder that forces him to never leave home. The name of the disorder is BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder) and it is a psychological disorder in which a person becomes obsessed with imaginary defects in their appearance.

The goal of Hall of Mirrors is simple – to raise awareness about the disorder, give hope to sufferers, and inform the average viewer. This will be a film which will not only entertain and move you, but also educate and inform on the issue of Body Dysmorphic Disorder. It will be a film which will provide a positive change in the lives of those who need it.

“Hall of Mirrors” is a short film that captures the decisive few days in the life of Basil, a young man who suffers from a mental disorder that forces him to never leave home. The name of the disorder is BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder) and it is a psychological disorder in which a person becomes obsessed with imaginary defects in their appearance.

Basil isolates himself completely until he is confronted by his foster brother, Henry, with the news about their mother’s deteriorating health. Basil is unable to leave the apartment to visit his mother in her last days, but Henry manages to get him out and the two drive to the town where they grew up.

During this road trip Basil is forced to face the demons that infest his mind and initiate the change in his life.
