I have been listed as a producer on Blessid, a local indie film. It is a suspense drama about a pregnant woman who forms a bond with a man who is immortal. At its core, Blessid is an anti-suicide film with a message of self forgiveness. I was contacted by the filmmaker because there is one part near the climax of the film that was inspired by my experience in the Amazon explaining the concept of suicide to the Piraha. He had discovered the anecdote on the Internet in his research of suicide – to him, there was no better anti-suicide message than suicide being “laughable” as life is so precious (and the Piraha did laugh at the idea that one would kill themselves).

The film is slated for release on July 22, 2016 on Amazon Video. Watch the official trailer and read more: http://blessidthemovie.com/
