Coping with Grief

A young woman copes with the loss of her mother by finding community in Portland. 

From filmmaker Mackie Mallison: This film was created to let others know who are experiencing similar struggles as Arita-Guerrero’s that they are not alone. Coping with grief is a topic that often goes unheard of. It’s a hard discussion to have. This was made to help bring more perspectives and stories to the conversation.

HEART AWARD WINNER
