Jackson Center, Senate Room
Student Activities Programs Board is honored to present a FREE movie screening for all EvCC students and staff. Don’t Change the Subject is a dark, funny, uplifting documentary about surviving suicide. Director Mike Stutz is excited to present such a serious topic with a comical twist. The documentary will be played in the Jackson Center Senate Room, from 1pm to 3pm. The length of the film is 97 minutes plus a Question and Answer session following.
A darkly comic look at what happens when one man dares ask the question “Why won’t anyone talk about suicide?” Director Mike Stutz investigates his mom’s suicide by opening up a conversation with his family that they never had when he was a kid. Then he recruits a band of writers, artists, dancers, comic punk clowns and suicide survivors to put their own unique stamp on the conversation. Teenagers dance to autopsy reports. A jumper gives tips on how to come out of a coma. A comic discovers that suicide can actually be funny. Also, dozens of amazingly honest and incredible people open up about their lives in ways you’d never expect. Oh and there’s animation, a suicide band, and parties for the dead.
Please join us for this informative event of a grave topic with an unexpected delivery. Do not leave your sense of humor at home. EvCC counselors will be aware and ready to facilitate any questions, discussions or counseling. Earl Martin, an EvCC counselor, will be attending the event. There will also be other counselors available all week in the counselor center on the third floor of Parks Student union.
