ABOUT THE MOVIE

AND WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT

Based on a true story

No Letting Go is a dramatic, independent feature film adapted from the award-winning short film, ILLNESS, and based on the real-life story of producer and co-writer Randi Silverman and her family. The film is a heartfelt look at one family’s journey to understand and to cope with the erratic behavior and emotional instability of their middle son.

While writing the screenplay with the film’s director, Jonathan Bucari, Randi used her own very personal experiences to create true to life characters, scenes, and dialogue that would honestly reflect the struggles her family faced as they discovered that their son’s behavior was the result of a serious mental health disorder. Given that 1 in 5 children suffers from a diagnosable mental health condition, Randi was determined to give voice to the millions of families who suffer alone and in silence.

No Letting Go was made with the purpose of sharing the honest truth about the devastating impacts of childhood mental illness in an effort to create conversations, end the silence caused by blame and shame, create awareness and understanding, and help people know they are not alone. As a result, the producers of No Letting Go have partnered with The Youth Mental Health Project, a nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization, which seeks to promote awareness and understanding of the mental health of children, adolescents, and young adults in an effort to improve the lives of children and families and reduce the incidence and severity of mental illness.

The goal is to bring No Letting Go to as many communities as possible in an effort to create dialogue and open conversations that will lay the important foundation for early intervention and prevention strategies.
