Brain on Fire statement

The film ‘Brain on Fire’, based on Susannah Cahalan’s memoirs, shows how the neurological disease, anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, rapidly grew and took over Susannah’s life. I took inspiration from the film and explored showing this rapid growth and conveying an element of fire, as the illness is described as the brain being on fire. I took a quote from Susannah Cahalan describing her experience of the illness which gives people a sense of her wellbeing at the time.
