DISCONNECTED

 THE STIGMA OF SUICIDE IN A BROKEN SOCIETY

"A documentary that brings light

to the darkness"

Julian Jansen -  Rapport

 

THE FILM

Suicide has long been thought to be the most stigmatising of bereavements.

Most of us don't know how to approach the subject of loss by suicide, so often we don't, creating more shame for those who are grieving.

Disconnected is a reflection of a mind-set, a momentum of thought, that often starts in the playground.

 

The spiraling of negative belief that manifests and grows, and for some, the only way to end their pain, is by withdrawing from life.

Through experiential stories we unravel the secrets of those affected by suicide, as we try to understand the complexity of life and the need for meaningful connection in our broken society.

The strength and value of this film lies in these voices
and the need for
CONNECTION
