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.
A pre-recorded discussion about the project was also broadcast with the film.
Contains challenging themes and sensitive content, which some may find distressing.
