Light In The Darkness:
A film that offers hope in the midst of despair and suicide.
The challenge — write and produce a gripping movie addressing the issue of depression and suicide while effectively modeling empathy to inspire hope.
Depression & despair can lead to:
Self-Decption — projecting that you're OK when you're not
Self-Centeredness — insistent to prove you don't need others; tackling life's difficult issues alone
Isolation — withdrawing after feeling misunderstood which can lead to self-pity issues alone
Unlock the bondage of despair through empathy:
Compassionate Listening — an act of selflessness, allowing someone to talk and purge their pain
Understanding — sympathetic awareness of other people's feelings
Sacrificial Time — making yourself available to be with someone even when it's inconvenient
