Director Bio

Steve Sanguedolce has been a member of Toronto's independent film community for over 35 years, winning numerous international awards. He has had retrospectives at the National Film Board in Toronto and the Arsenal Institute for Film and Video in Germany. Over the past 20 years he has been hand developing and hand colouring motion picture film to great acclaim.


How can we express the emotional experience of depression and suicide and overcome the stigmas associated with mental health? Sanguedolce’s experimental documentary brings together four artists (including experimental filmmaker Mike Hoolboom), who speak with refreshing honesty about how thoughts of suicide have dominated their personal and creative lives. Shot on 16mm and hand-coloured, the flow of images creates a poetic visual response to the stories presented on the soundtrack and allows space for reflection.
