Join WXXI Education for a special virtual screening and chat about the Speaking Grief documentary. 

"Speaking Grief" explores why the pain of losing a loved one can be so difficult to understand and discuss. The film interviews grieving families from across the U.S., whose losses range from stillbirth to suicide, to address common misconceptions about grief. Through candid personal stories and conversations with experts in the grief field, the film also presents ideas for how family and friends can better support each other through loss. 

What: Virtual Screening of Speaking Grief will include a screening of the 1 hour documentary followed by a chat with local guest speakers that work in this field.

When: October 6, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. ET
