THE FILMMAKERS

Director's Statement

This film was inspired by the single image of a young boy standing below a bright moon, waving goodbye to someone he would never see again. From there, it developed into a story about a family experiencing the multitudes of loss, and the complicated grief that comes along with losing someone to suicide - especially someone so young.

Having recently experienced the loss of my own brother to his mental illness, Under The Supermoon is a film that I wear very close to my heart. It is my hope that this film can be a part of the social push to bring awareness to mental health disorders and to help break down the stigma surrounding it.

We rallied together to finish this film for my brother, and it is for him that we share this story.
