2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Told from a mother’s perspective, Finding Elijah is a documentary film that follows a young man’s journey from home into mental illness, homelessness and ultimately suicide, using interviews, archival footage and original art and photos. It explores how a search for answers leads a mother to action. The film will be used as a teaching and healing tool to assist individuals and families affected by loss through suicide.
