A day in the life of Battie Hattie (The presumptions of a narrow mind)

This is a film I made for a competition (art with impact)
A short tongue in cheek film about the presumptions people make regarding mental health.
I feel a lot of people are very narrow minded and ignorant when it comes to mental health, being depressed or anxious does not mean you are a 'loony' it does not mean you can not be trusted to chop an onion, and it does not mean you are unworthy of any ones time and compassion, yet a lot of people treat it as such.
I've used my character 'Battie Hattie' from the Doll house cabaret to further demonstrate my point.
This is in no way meant to be offensive to anyone who suffers with any form of mental illness, I am dressed like a bat to place further emphasis on peoples narrow minded view,, if anyone is seen as 'different' surely they must be battie! so why not dress like a bat?
narrow minded presumptions always lead to the wrong conclusion!
