“Anamnesis” is the product of Jade's and my passion for medicine and art. We used our limitations to craft a story that embraces silence; that finds beauty in how much people can say in the way they move, the clothes they wear, the words they keep locked inside; that shows courage through our vulnerability, agency through our decisions; that illustrates that sometimes, in the quietest of moments, love is at its loudest.
