Wed­nes­day OPEN­ING SHOT 2

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - PROGRAMS -

ABC2, 9.30pm

Cre­ated by a range of bur­geon­ing film­mak­ers 35 and un­der, this short film se­ries cov­ers some big is­sues. It’s not a sub­ject many peo­ple will gladly pon­der, but sui­cide is a cul­tural epi­demic in Aus­tralia – a taboo sub­ject that needs to be openly dis­cussed. Tonight, three young sui­cide sur­vivors con­front the stigma by re­veal­ing why they tried to end their life and how they have turned things around. We meet Bryan, who strug­gled af­ter his par­ents’ breakup; Becks, who was a vic­tim of child sex­ual abuse; and Chris, who has grap­pled with de­pres­sion all his life. Two sui­cide hot­line op­er­a­tors also re­veal what it takes to do their job.
