”Toxic Love Cycle,” a four-part poetry film series, depicts the downward spiral of a woman who dims her light to make her partner feel secure. The theme revolves around the concept of psychological projection. The episodes are about 1) mistrust and accusations; 2) domineering and demeaning behaviour; 3) deprivation of intimacy and feelings of unworthiness; and 4) disconnection from self and envy of others.
