Happening nearby: ‘Four Sisters’ documentary about surviving suicide, premieres Monday

Four Sisters – Trailer from Caley Cook on Vimeo.

No city has gone untouched by suicide, including Edmonds, so we are posting this information — even thought it’s not happening here — as a community service.

On Monday, May 5, from 6:30-8 p.m. you can view the Seattle premiere of “Four Sisters,” in which four women who lost their brothers to suicide tell their stories of loss, grief and moving forward in their own lives. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion and social hour, and is billed as both an educational and community building event.

The screening will occur on the University of Washington campus, Social Work Commons Room 305, 4101 15th Ave. N.E.

This special screening is free and guests are welcome, but reservations are requested to ffront@uw.edu. For more information on the film, including the trailer, go to http://foursistersdoc.com.
