My name is Sean Mannion and I’m a producer for the film The Videoblogs. The Videoblogs is an independent feature film about a young woman whose life takes a surprising turn after a teenager discovers her private video journal. The film, at its core, is about three women forming a bond and a mutually supportive community as they open up to each other about the mental health issues they face.
The Videoblogs filmmakers Michael DiBiasio and Rebecca De Ornelas are traveling around the U.S. in May with the film for Mental Health Awareness month. They’ve already screened the film in New York, Providence, and Sarasota. On the tour they will also be hitting Denver, Los Angeles, Boston, and Detroit. On Saturday May 21st they’ll be screening the film in Portland. We are partnering with mental health organizations in the areas we’re traveling to to promote the screenings and to promote discussion during the post-screening Q&A about mental health.
Following our Providence Screening Mary Harrington, Board Member for Mental Health Rhode Island said: “Your film beautifully illustrates how healing and empowering connections with people who get you and with whom you don’t have to hide your pain and who don’t judge you are.”
