This past May, the documentary I CHOSE LIFE from Starseed Pictures featuring Supernatural‘s Jared Padalecki launched. Now, in the wake of National Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month, the team behind the film will be hosting a free screening.
On Thursday, World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10 at 8:30 p.m. EST/5:30 p.m. PST, you can watch the documentary online at no cost. The showing will be followed by a preview of The Last Train — the film that inspired the documentary to be released in November — and a Zoom party live chat with Anthony Montes and filmmaker Jacqui Blue, which will end with a guided meditation.
This will be the only opportunity to see the film with no cost and a limited number of tickets are available, so reserve today before they’re gone!
The documentary centers around the much needed conversations about the suicide crisis in our society today. I CHOSE LIFE delves into suicide history and cultures of the past to the present, bullying, abuse, mental illness, youth suicide, military and veteran suicides, the LGBTQ community, the effects of nutrition on the brain, warning signs, risk factors, coping mechanisms, and solutions. It also follows the story behind the feature movie The Last Train, the story of Anthony Montes, who attempted to end his life.
You can rent or purchase the film from their website, www.ichoselifefilm.com, a version is available with open captions on Vimeo which includes 15 minutes of bonus footage featuring Jared Padalecki and Emmy-nominated hip-hop artist and actor T.O.N.E-z.
