ABOUT THE FILM:

NOT ALONE
US 2016, 50 min
When Jacqueline Monetta’s best friend committed suicide at 16, she struggled to understand why. That led her to make her first documentary, where
young people could share their personal stories of suffering and healing and demonstrate how other teens can get the help they need. Conceived
and created by, for and about teens, Not Alone is an inspiring testament to the power of love and compassion
