Here's a beautifully shot short film called The Forge that was made to send out a positive anti-suicide message. It's done in a visually explosive way. The movie was written and directed by Stephen Reedy, and it was inspired by the death of the sister of the film's star Eric Lim. She took her own life. This may be influenced by a tragic event, but this delivers an inspiring message of hope for anyone that is hurting, and it's told in a very stunning way. Here's a message from the director,
THE FORGE, an emotional, anti-suicide message in which a man battles his inner demon in a fight for his life.
You see... our friend’s sister, Tanya Lim, killed herself, leaving behind her savings to her brother and aspiring movie producer Eric. Eric felt the only appropriate use of this tragic gift was to make something both in her honor and to prevent others from falling into the dark place she fell victim to. To shed a ray of strength on people affected by depression.
The end result is The Forge. A short film made by a group of friends and strangers-turned-family that came together to make a re-imagining of the public service announcement in their free time over the course of one year. The production value is impressive and I’m particularly really proud to be part of this.
Watch it below.
Thanks to Nathan Fackrell and Stephen Reedy for sending this to us.
