A father in self-imposed exile to shield his family from the emotionally destructive intrusive thoughts he cannot escape.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an often misunderstood and debilitating condition. It can leave those who suffer from it, and those who live with them, feeling overwhelmed and alone.
WAVING is an attempt to portray the brutal realities of the condition whilst maintaining a sense of hope that help can be found when we talk about what hurts us.
The film started the festival circuit during the Summer of 2022.

Girl in Red
We at Biohaven are so honoured to support the making of the film “Waving”. There is an extreme need for education around Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, accurately portraying the symptoms and how severe and debilitating it can be. This film depicts the intensity and torment that affects those with OCD and their loved ones, in a way that leaves you speechless. Waving is a giant creative step in bringing attention to the necessary importance for earlier and accurate diagnoses, and better more effective treatments. Psychiatric illnesses need to be better understood to help destigmatize those in need and the world around them. At Biohaven we continue this fight, working diligently to find new treatments for OCD as well as other neurological and psychiatric illnesses. We hope this film touches you as deeply as it has touched us.
