Leanne Pooley's inspiring and fearless documentary The Girl On The Bridge is playing at three additional Auckland cinemas as well as at the New Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF) online - see below for details, and click the image above to watch the trailer.
The Girl on the Bridge follows 21-year-old Jazz Thornton during the pivotal two-year period she was emerging out of her own struggles with suicide to become a powerful advocate for mental health. During this time, she was also embarking on a personal project, the award-winning 2019 web series Jessica's Tree which pays reflective tribute to the eponymous friend whose life she could not save (see our item on this web series' New York Festival award).
