Coming up for Air, winner of four best feature awards tells the story of ceramic artist Anna Russell and her son Stan, a straight A college student and high diving champion seeking a spot on the men's 10m Olympic diving team. The pressure and stress to succeed in both his competitions and school take their toll and Stan begins a downward spiral with potentially tragic consequences.
A breathtaking family drama that highlights the importance of mental health care, this feature takes audiences on an all-too-common journey, highlighting the pressures that are put upon teenagers to succeed and on parents to cope.
Coming Up for Air is being hailed as a picture that will launch a national conversation about the significant role caregivers play helping friends, family and individuals recover from mental illness.
A panel discussion to include the audience will be moderated by Maj. (ret.) Sam Cochran.
