About the Film
When filmmaker Kathy Leichter moved back into the apartment she grew up in after her mother committed suicide, she discovered a hidden box of audiotapes. Sixteen years passed before she had the courage to delve into this trove, unearthing details that her mother had recorded about every aspect of her life from the challenges of her marriage to a State Senator, to her son’s estrangement, to her struggles with bipolar disorder.
Here One Day is a bracing, visually arresting, emotionally candid film about a woman coping with mental illness, her relationships with her family, and the ripple effects of her suicide on those she loved.
The film will be followed by community discussion, questions and answers by Producer/Director Kathy Leichter and local mental health professionals.
Reception beings at 6:30, Film Showing at 7pm, discussion with filmmaker Kathy Leichter follows. Free admission, donations accepted.
