Several global events and actions are planned for the day, in order to create awareness, remember lost loved ones, and support suicide prevention. Suicide is the second leading cause of deaths worldwide among 15-29 year olds, but remains a taboo topic – one reason why writer/director Alex K. Lee decided to address it in a film. (more…)

Thank you Jesús Palacios for this awesome review from the premiere of “La Vie Nous Appartient” at Gijón:
The review is available only in Spanish right now, but here are some quotes:
“… beautiful, simple and necessary.”
“… an intelligent, funny and sensitive review of (a) romantic myth”
“… brilliantly written, (providing) a refined sensitivity to the reality of the feelings and experiences of adolescents”
We are more than excited that our movie is receiving such a great response! Truly humbled!
This week our two actors, the director and part of our team, visited the rainy, but picturesque Spanish town of Gijón, to present “La Vie Nous Appartient” to an attentive festival audience. This was the first screening of our film, so we were naturally very nervous about how it would be received. Here is the link to the press conference at Gijón, held to announce the World Première that night: LVNA press conference
To our amazement, the response both of the adult, as well as the young audience, was astounding! Both large venues were packed, with reactions during and after the film exceeding all our expectations. We were especially humbled by the large teen audience at the impressive Teatro de la Laboral, which grilled us with great questions at the 2! hour Q & A session after the film.
The première at Gijón was also the first time that our protagonists Alix and Florent saw the film in its entirety, and it was especially important to us that we create something that they can be proud of, deserving of the great talents that they are. So our immense indebtedness goes to them, as well as the entire crew, and our public and private supporters, for making this film possible.
While another great French film, “La Cité Rose”, won the “Enfant Terribles” section that we competed in – congratulations! – we are grateful to the Gijón International Film Festival for providing us this opportunity to present our film in such a rewarding and welcoming environment, alongside such a great selection of films. Thank you for the memorable experience!
