So I did miss the premiere of "My Suicide" at the Gen Art Film Festival in New York. I was so jealous cause everyone else had a blast. Coco - my youngest sister - went and raved about it. I am not saying it is good because the film's animator - Arvin - is my cousin. Okay, okay, so maybe I am a little biased. But he really is very talented and the movie is really good.
Everyone who watched the movie came out with a deep understanding of a serious issue that's facing today's teens.

"Maddening, disarming, undisciplined, incisive, solipsistic: adjectives to describe teen behavior in general and "My Suicide" in particular…its guerrilla style should catapult the pic to major cult status.” – Variety
