The truth is the subject matter is hard, but it is authentic and true. These stories are the experiences many of us have endured and are making sense of everyday. The film provides an opportunity to connect to our own feelings through the words and experiences of others. Coming together to support each other, sharing both the heartache and the beauty in compassion and hope.
It may be your child, sibling, parents or best friends that have been through this. If so, you have likely been personally affected by the loss as well. This film may offer some new perspectives and highlight what your loved ones may be going through and will continue to work through for the rest of their lives. It may introduce a starting point for dialogue or some answers to questions that have always been uncomfortable to ask.
For direct line medical and grief support staff this film provides a creative learning opportunity to dig in a little deeper to the depth behind the diagnoses. Many of you face this on a daily basis and provide not only knowledge and skill, but the utmost compassion and support through the darkest moments of our lives.
If you have been through any of these traumas directly or support those that have, I invite you to take a few hours out of your day to view this beautiful film and say hello to some of the great support services and organizations we have in our community.
For those in Calgary I hope to see you there. Tickets can be purchased at the door or through the link below. See event poster below for more info. To purchase the film or bring it to your area please contact Alexis Marie Chute at email@example.com :>
Sending you love and light always.
