Film – A Safe Space

Film – A Safe Space



The Silver Lining Foundation presents A Safe Space (film).

This film project from the youth led, youth oriented organization documents the harsh realities and inspiring testimonies from local and international families and individuals dealing with issues faced by the LGBTQ community.

“A Safe Space” tells the story of the genesis and work of The Silver Lining Foundation. The Foundation’s raison d’être stems from the untimely death by suicide of a young 16 year old teenager. His mother, Katherine Kazanjian, relates the heart-breaking ordeal and the journey to turn this tragedy into an avenue to help other young people.

One such avenue is the peer support group started by the Foundation, of which this film borrows its title. Head Counsellor at the University of the West Indies and close Foundation ally, Dr. Sarah Chin Yuen Kee, talks about the dynamics of the group from a mental health perspective. Director, Jeremy Steffan Edwards, also relates his personal reasons for why he chose to start the Foundation.

This film was being produced in Trinidad & Tobago, by The Silver Lining Foundation, featuring testimonies from A Smile for George and The Matthew Shepard Foundation.
