FREE SHORT FILM SCREENING OF SUICIDE EYES WITH Q&A
SUICIDE EYES, BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND
SUICIDE EYES, a short film by local Taylor Seupel, garnered standing ovations from a
capacity crowd in Kingston on February 17, 2023.
A 14-minute dark comedy meant to kick off discussion about this tough subject, the film
was hailed by many educators in the audience as a must-see for schools and colleges.
The story follows Jake, a young man who decides to end his life. However, there are
consequences he can’t escape, and he must bear witness to the events that unfold.
The film features local actors and locations of the Hudson Valley. Students from the
Digital Media department at SUNY New Paltz also helped with production. It is
dedicated to Seupel’s brother, father, and friend, all of whom died of suicide in 2012.
Taylor Seupel, actor, writer and filmmaker, has pursued his career in Manhattan, England
