Brainstream is an interactive animated film that explores, with sensitivity and humor the workings of our brain. You’re inside the head of D., a young girl who’s livestreaming her brain activity during a new kind of treatment session. Online, along with other participants, you massage her brain, experiencing the free flow of her thoughts. Now, she’s telling you about her weekend. Earlier, her anxiety played some catchy beats. Keep massaging. It’s doing her some good. In exchange, she’s giving you a guided tour of what’s going on inside her head, empowered by your gestures and stimulating presence. D. opens up as her mind wanders—perhaps a little bit like your own mind. Created by Studio AATOAA and produced by the National Film Board of Canada.
