Don't Change the Subject (film) Free admission
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 mother's suicide by opening up a conversation with his family that they never had when he was younger. Then he recruits a band of writers, artists, dancers, comics, 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 that you'd never expect. Also, animation, a suicide band, and parties for dead people.
