Why Are My Friends Killing Themselves?

Published on April 16, 2020 by

A real-life drama about why, in the beautiful and quirky rural town of Hebden Bridge, filmmaker Jez Lewis’ childhood friends are killing themselves. Beginning with a personal quest for understanding, the film moves into a year-long drama of human tragedy and redemption as principal character Cass comes to terms with his own mortality and attempts to lift himself out of his cycle of self-destruction.

This core narrative carves an upward arc through an intimate study of a place often described as paradise, but which harbours an undertow of lethal hedonism and disillusionment.

As people continue to kill themselves during the making of the film, a maelstrom of conflicting values throws up unexpected truths about the human condition..
