  • Title: Good Days | Bad Days | Maccana Teoranta
    Descriptive info: on Jun 18, 2011 in.. 492 comments.. A film to celebrate life.. Press Release: El Universal, México City, June 18th 2011.. ).. (Source:.. http://www.. eluniversal.. com.. mx/espectaculos/104999.. html.. In México, says Kevin McCann, statistics show an increase in suicides, and that is why he wants to address this subject in film.. The filmmaker Kevin McCann wants to produce a feature film, Good Days and Bad Days, in order to celebrate human existence, since the suicide rate have been increasing around 25% in a period of three years and it is estimated that it can increase even more.. “What I need is financial support, I have money from Ireland, the filming community, the government, now I need to ask the Mexican people to support the project, because it really is an urgent subject, the increase in suicides among young people; in our investigation we discover that between 2006 and 2009 there was a 25% increase in suicides, especially in people between 15 and 24 years; the next report will be out in 2012 and it is expected to increase even more”, he said in an interview.. This drama documentary will be filmed in Mexico since it is one of the countries where statistics are alarming and constantly increasing..  ...   from the meaning of life, such as facing problems, confronting obligations, detecting that there are reasons to choose life.. “The film is about life, it is not about suicide, is about celebrating life.. In the search of life we see drama, catastrophe, loneliness, but we also provide an idea of how to get out of these situations”, said this young Irish man whose intention is to start shooting the project in August if he obtains the resources.. “There are three basic things that need to be covered so people can have mental health.. First you have to be aware of the power of the mind and the ego.. It is criticizing you, making you feel guilty and especially young people don’t know how to deal with this, that we are sabotaging ourselves.. Something equally important is that taking care of the body has an influence on how we feel.. The third thing is we all need to believe, we need to believe in ourselves or in a religion or in spirituality, something that allows us to understand a little more about the world”, he said.. The Project will also include a digital platform where people can be in touch with information and exchange ideas about their problems..
