When filmmaker Kathy Leichter moved back into her childhood home after her mother's 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 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.

Here One Day is reducing stigma and isolation, raising awareness, linking individuals and families to support, and helping to change mental health and suicide prevention and postvention policy across the country.

Here One Day will be shown at the Cincinnati ReelAbilities Film Festival on Monday, March 2, at 7:30pm at the Kenwood Theatre. For more information on the festival, please visit: http://www.cincyra.org/
