Teleurdeugd speaks about the omnipresent theme of depression and psychological issues without trying to moralize the audience. The film doesn’t offer answers or solutions, instead it invites to reflect on and speak about these problems. Teleurdeugd is a counterweight to the way psychological problems are typically portrayed in the media and tries to break the taboo on the subject in an innovative way.
Teleurdeugd was filmed in Ghent, Belgium. Spoken in Dutch, with French and English subtitles.
