HANGING, 6min, USA, Animation
Directed by Nick LeDonne
An abstracted animated documentary based off of Nick LeDonne's personal struggle with depression and suicidal thoughts after a near attempted hanging in November 2014. His feelings of depression are personified through a dark luring fog and a loving mother desperately trying to keep her son alive.
Nick LeDonne is very excited for the release of his third year Junior film "Hanging". Having only a semester to produce this 6,000 drawing film, Nick pushed through this heavily emotional project despite personal challenges such as the passing of his father, losing his family house, and starting a new school all during the spring semester production. He hopes that audiences will be touched and moved by his work and remember that we all fall down sometimes but it's important that we "Hang ON".
