Suicide. No one wants to say that word, yet it is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. (American Foundation for Suicide Prevention) Everyone that dies by suicide leaves behind family, friends, a community, and everything changes. We want to forever remember those who have left this earth too soon, but we mustn’t forget their loved ones who are still here either.
This was the inspiration for Survived By, to talk to and tell the stories of parents who lost a child to suicide. I only hope that this documentary has been able to help loved ones facing the same realities as well as those who have had thoughts of suicide to see how permanent it is and how it affects the ones they love most.
I have been humbled and amazed at the degree of support this short documentary has made and am thrilled to be taking it for screening in the short film corner of the Festival De Cannes in May 2017.
