AWI Sanctuary Space presents: “Tunnel Beach” Watch Party
An ongoing Continued Connections program that creates virtual spaces for people to connect at the intersection of art and mental health.
Join us for a virtual watch party and filmmaker Q&A as we screen and celebrate our March 2022 short film competition winner: “Tunnel Beach”.
About the film:
“Tunnel Beach” is an attempt at expressing suicide and depression, both internally, and in relation to those we love. My hope is that this film showcases the duality of how complicated asking for help can be, despite how powerful and necessary that vulnerability is.
About the filmmaker:
Nina Kiri is a Serbian-Canadian actor, writer, and director. As an actor she has starred in numerous Canadian independent films, most notably “Easy Land” which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2019.
