HBO’s Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1


The agency handled publicity for the Academy Award®-winning HBO short subject documentary CRISIS HOTLINE: VETERANS PRESS 1. 

The critically-acclaimed film is directed by four-time Primetime Emmy®-winning director Ellen Goosenberg Kent (HBO’s “Wartorn: 1861-2013” and “Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq”) and producer Dana Perry (HBO’s “Boy Interrupted” which tells the story of Perry’s son’s life and tragic death).

Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1 is a short cinema-verite documentary about the only suicide hotline dedicated exclusively to US veterans. The call center is located in Canandaigua, New York, and the hotline receives over 22,000 calls per month from veterans of all ages in crisis. Access to the hotline’s heroic responders provides a deep understanding of the kinds of challenges veterans face today, a time when their suicide rate is approximately 22 a day, almost twice that of the civilian population.
