Life’s Journeys: Reclaiming Life After Loss (video)https://vimeo.com/180640978

This film is about suicide loss, grief and the path to healing. The film shares the stories from long-term survivors who have learned to cope with their tragic loss, while honoring the memory of their loved ones.

AFTER | A documentary short about suicide bereavement https://vimeo.com/30819671

In 2002, filmmaker Jesse Feigelman took his life. Nine years later, Bill and Beverly, Jesse’s parents, reflect on the past and struggle to reconcile what they thought might have been, with their reality. After explores the unique experience of suicide loss and the interminable reverberations left in its wake.

“Above all else, the film is compelling. What’s moving to me is that it contains visuals worth all the other words in the film. Jeremy Cohan has turned out an extremely good effort.”
– Ira Wohl, director of BEST BOY, Academy Award Best Documentary Winner

The Journey – A Documentary Produced by AFSP

This film “shows how a group of suicide loss survivors are weathering the loss of a loved one, and how they are finding their way back to life rich in meaning – and even Joy.”
