My Sister Liv | Alan Hicks Interview – Doc NYC

My Sister Liv

Pressure for a young person in society is intense. With bombardments from social media, television, and peers, young people must carefully navigate their lives and emotions to balance their mental health. With director Alan Hicks, he captures emotional and intimate moments in the documentary My Sister Liv as a family battling after a young person’s suicide.

Here is the official synopsis:

My Sister Liv features sisters Tess and Liv, who from a young age are inseparable. Liv is a young girl, growing up with relentless pressures of social media, teen depression and, often, suicidal thoughts. My Sister Liv takes us into a rare and riveting journey of raw emotions and fears of a young life on the edge—and ultimately a big sister’s desperate struggle to save her. Through fearless storytelling, My Sister Liv reveals the realities of stigma, the struggles of mental health, and the aftermath for the survivors left behind in a suicide. As a family learns to cope with their new normal, they find hope in filling a gap around fearlessly talking about mental health and ultimately to save young lives.
