Glad You’re Here Short Film, Audience FEEDBACK from July 2020 Female Festival

GLAD YOU’RE HERE, 10min., Canada, Documentary
Directed by Lisa Kannakko

Engaging themes of love and betrayal, hope, belonging and place, Glad You’re Here documents my nineteen–year journey through building a family life, seeing it suffer the damage of mental illness, grief and separation, and then rebuilding with empathy. A story about an extreme moment of crisis has turned into a documentary that deals not just with the subjective but with the important issue of spousal abuse.
