This beautifully honest series from Imogen Cleverly is her catharsis: her expression of being alienated from the world is akin to being lost in the sparse wilderness. The desolate surroundings, far from society, are akin to the detachment Cleverly feels from the world whilst recovering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The sun-drenched Mediterranean hillside not only serves as a back-drop for some beautiful background shots; mountain tops have long been associated with the mind amongst spiritual beings for centuries and it is no coincidence that a series focusing on the horror of over-coming PTSD is set upon the top of a mountain. Cleverly skilfully weaves symbolic and illusive shots amongst the bushes, in that mountain amongst the clouds, to show how the lingering effects of Post-Traumatic Stress hide within the recesses of the mind. Always there but never seen.
