Helena

When I decided to do a film about my mother’s death, I was afraid that whoever saw the film would think I was a whiny teenager looking for sympathy. But then I realized that making this film would help me in a lot of ways; help me accept her death, help me cope with the fact that she took drugs, and help me understand that she wasn’t a bad person. I also thought it would be a good way to bring up good memories of her, and help me to stop hating her for everything she put me through. Making a film about my mother’s death has helped me become a stronger person.
