    The S Word

    WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10 AT 7:00PM | REGULAR ADMISSION PRICES

    “A Q&A session with members of Tucson’s mental health community will follow the film.

    The S Word, a feature-length documentary, tackles one of the most unfathomable issues of our time by telling the stories of suicide attempt survivors, along with the families and loved ones of those who have died by suicide – who are left behind to suffer the anguish, guilt, and confusion of death by suicide, the 10th leading cause of death in America. The voices of those living through suicide loss and attempts will be amplified above simple discussion and politics of the issues. This film will be bracing, controversial, and surprising in its revelations, its humor, its connections, and its multiple points of view.”

    This is a rental of The Loft Cinema, in partnership with NAMI Southern Arizona.
