The faster pace of life in modern society has among other things led to an increase in the prevalence of panic attacks and anxiety disorders. A composition of details torn from context, accompanied by commentary from victims of panic attacks demonstrates the various ways in which they are manifested and draws unsettling conclusions.


Ernesto Ardito (1972) is an Argentinian filmmaker. His directorial debut Raymundo (2003), a portrait of a director persecuted by the military dictatorship, is one of the most successful Argentinian documentaries of recent decades.
