Hanging in There

Directed by Nathan Israileff
Narrative Short
USA |14 min | 2021

Matt is interrupted during a suicide attempt, by his friend Andy, and what commences is a conversation about depression, suicide and understanding.

2020 was hard for a lot of people, and in a year when we had to look inside of ourselves for strength that we don’t always find, I felt it important to shine a light on the uncomfortable conversation of depression & suicide.
