The movie Stroke was inspired by Dr Jill Bolte Taylor’s talk on her experience of having a stroke. What drew our attention to the story was how a stroke, commonly regarded as a negative experience, could be so positive and revealing for someone.

 

 

Keeping the strong subject of such a dangerous disease, the unexpected interpretation is what guided the creation of the short, which is focused on one’s subjective vision, usually exclusively reserved for the subject who experiences it, made available to the audience using animation as its media.
