A Pistol Against My Head

Luca & Sinem
View Director

A Pistol Against My Head was made as part of Animated Minds: a series of short animated documentaries, which use real testimony from people who have experienced different forms of mental distress. This episode follows the real-life story of Hugh, an ex-army soldier, who is coping with the psychological fallout of war following tours in Northern Ireland and Bosnia. In his own words, he recounts his experiences from joining the forces to eventually being discharged and diagnosed with PTSD. Against the voiceover, his world is animated in a visually compelling and engaging way, using colours and shadows to help give a small insight into what it’s like to suffer from a trauma of this kind.
