Drawing from Life – Video

This short documentary follows a group therapy workshop for people  who have attempted suicide more than once. A hybrid of vérité and animation, the film is a  candid portrayal of 12 people who together, for 20 weeks, take on their  fears, their behaviours and their ghosts to move towards life and away from  suicide.  Drawing from Life is a production of the National Film Board  of Canada’s Filmmaker-in-Residence project, produced with the creative  participation of Seneca College of Applied Arts & Technology, Animation Arts Centre.
