SCATTERING CJ

Directed by Andrea Kalin
Week 3 – Film rental available Friday, July 24 – Thursday, July 30

Hallie Twomey lost her eldest son, CJ, to suicide. After years of grief, she was compelled to undertake one last maternal act. Something that commemorated the way he lived, not how his life ended. Hallie put a call out on Facebook, asking for help in honoring CJ’s love of travel by scattering his ashes in amazing places he might have visited had he lived. Over 21,000 people answered Hallie’s call. The initiative became a global phenomenon. SCATTERING CJ finds hope in the darkest of places, exploring the extraordinary generosity of strangers, and one troubled family’s attempt to find peace.

Andrea Kalin directed FIRST LADY OF THE REVOLUTION (SFF 2017).
