Cursed is a feature documentary project bringing to audiences the stories of women, girls and AFAB (assigned female at birth) individuals who live with premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) and the ignorance, shame and stigma which come with the condition.In a patriarchal world, where stigma and shame have hidden the challenges of menstruating, five million women and girls live with premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a darker and more extreme affliction than the much more common premenstrual syndrome (PMS). An expanding community of PMDD survivors are breaking taboos and pushing to normalize the unspoken within an evolving landscape where science is finally catching up with this cyclical nightmare.
