Last year, before I started the project, I reached out to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention for advice. Serendipitously, I met with Eric Marcus and his colleagues who work to support survivors of suicide, people who have lost a loved one to suicide. Eric and his team were very supportive and thoughtful about my project, and some of the men I met were directly through their outreach support. At the time of our meeting, they were also excited about a video documentary they were making for Survivors Day. I can see why.
Please note: The film is appropriate for most middle and high school–aged children to watch with a guardian. It is not intended for children under 12, or for children or adolescents who are currently struggling or suicidal. Guardians, please use your best judgment when deciding whether to let those in your care view the film.
