Based on Padraic Lillis’ award-winning one man show, Get to Eleven blends live performance elements
with narrative cinematic storytelling in an intimate conversation about suicide, addiction and the importance of sharing stories in our darkest moments.
On stage in performance, among friends in conversation, and in the streets and subways of New York City, Padraic offers his own story, and empowers his audiences to deepen their own relationship with life, mental health, and mortality.
FILM WILL BE FOLLOWED BY A PANEL DISCUSSION WITH PADRAIC LILLIS
Sofia, Hedvig and Maja grew up with grief. They were only 8, 10 and 16 years old when their mother took her own life. Today, they are young adults. They have moved on with their lives, but all have struggled in their own ways to cope with their loss.
Now, as they step into adult life, all three feel the need to make sense of their experiences and talk more openly about their mother’s death. In Daughters, we meet the sisters as children and today, as they reflect on what it is like to come of age in the aftermath of trauma.
FILM WILL BE FOLLOWED BY A PANEL DISCUSSION
