So how can anybody make a movie about suicide?

hopebridge_poster_7'Loveland, Oh. – Writers and now movie producers, Christine and David Eaton live in Loveland. Their movie Hope Bridge, is finally on its way and will be released on DVD May 26.

“Hope Bridge”, is a Movie starring Boo Boo Stewart and Kevin Sorbo. It is directed By Joshua Overbay. Hope Bridge is about Jackson, a young man who is on a journey to find hope and reconciliation in the midst of his grief.

For Christine & David Eaton, the topic of suicide is real and personal. The Eaton’s have lived it. And they know and understand how suicide can deeply impact individuals, families, and communities within this nation. Due to what they experienced in their family, they wanted to make a difference and help in whatever way they could to prevent this type of tragedy from happening to others. BUT HOW? Through prayer and intense searching of their hearts they felt God tugging on them to, of all things, make a movie.

So how can anybody make a movie about suicide? It’s not exactly a popular topic. “We dove into this because we wanted to save lives. And with this movie, HOPE BRIDGE, we feel it’s strongly possible. Our desire was to shed light on the issues that surround this topic that many would rather sweep under the rug. It’s something that people don’t want to talk about. There’s a sense of shame, embarrassment and stigma that’s often associated with those who have gone through it. That simply needs to disappear and this is an avenue that will lead people to start talking about it on so many levels.”
