ABOUT THE PROJECT
A work that combines documentary and essay, FOCUSED LIFE examines the widespread need for attention in an age of pervasive distraction.
SYNOPSIS / DESCRIPTION
In the United States, ADHD is so common that some psychologists define it as a cultural norm. Many of us lack confidence in our ability to focus or simply don't notice how it impacts our lives. As something so integral to personal connection and well-being, how do we navigate living in a society that thrives on stealing our attention? FOCUSED LIFE explores the concept of focus and distraction through a series of interwoven vignettes in which people and practitioners give voice to the challenges of mental discipline. Filmed and edited with meditative fluidity, the result is an experiential essay on one of our most underestimated and endangered cognitive abilities.
