Thanks for your feedback

In this series of 13 short films, actors read the powerful testimonies of people affected by suicide.

Based on the book Our Encounters with Suicide (ed. Fran Biley, Alex Grant, Judith Haire, Brendan Stone), Kathryn and Penny Capper’s films explore the impact of suicide in the wider community. Giving voice to diverse perspectives and experiences, the Suicide Monologues aims to challenge taboos and generate discussion around a complex subject that’s generally not talked about.

After the film, a pre-recorded discussion about the project will be broadcast.

Contains challenging themes and sensitive content, which some may find distressing.
