Bengal (2021) An up-and-coming boxer is forced to abandon his promising young career after a public breakdown as a result of his OCD. Now, a couple years later, he is back after earning his spot in a world title fight with undefeated champion, Billy “Wild Child” Tanner. Will he have what it takes to surmount OCD and become champion in the ring—and in life? Filmmaker: Brian Yuran
Sky (2019) A young pianist finds refuge from the tangles of his OCD through music. After meeting a new girl at school, Ben writes a beautiful, free-flowing piano composition. When Ben’s music teacher advises that he play the piece during his audition for a prestigious music conservatory, he begins to obsess over its quality. His increasingly rigid approach to music destroys his only source of relief from mental anguish, and jeopardizes his relationships. Filmmaker: Lance Childers
