The Rippling Effects of Suicide with the film EIGHT.

Actor/stunt performer/author and motivational speaker Steve Mason screens his 21 minute short film EIGHT. EIGHT tells the story of Steve's father (a former NY police officer) who commits suicide and Steve, his eight-year old son would find the body. After the film, Steve takes the audience on a journey of his life and explains how suicide affects many more than the person who takes his life. Q & A to follow.
