From personal experiences of violence and sexual abuse to collective suffering such as war and political unrest, trauma is seldom singular, but rather, has a social impact based on the affect or trigger of events.

This symposium, Cortisol, aims to look at how we cope with narratives of past trauma, and asks how traumatic incidents impact one’s emotional range. This event will explore sixteen filmmaker’s interpretation of these questions and inspire conversations on healing and reconciliation.

The programme will showcase a day of screenings intercut with moderated discussions by interdisciplinary artists. Cortisol will feature a wide range of perspectives to create a discourse led by pioneers in the film industry.
