Short Film: Gaslighting, by Tina Matzat

The short film is about a dangerous form of manipulation often occurring in close relationships in which one overpowers the other by manipulating her/his perception through lies, confusion, unjustified guilt-shaming and distraction. Through this the victim is kept down and conditioned on the gaslighter. At the end the protagonist emancipates in a surprising way.
