Alternative Cinema: 1999
(Samara Chadwick, 2017)
Samara Chadwick in person!
Sixteen years after a wave of teen suicides traumatized a small New Brunswick community, former classmates attempt to piece together their long-silenced memories and shared grief in the hopes of finally healing. Within dusty boxes of diaries, photos, and VHS tapes, this elegiac documentary weaves together multiple voices in a collective essay on how grief is internalized—and how, as children, we so painfully learn to articulate our desire to stay alive.
