17 Minutes

17 Minutes is a video project that brings light to the suicide that is committed every 17 minutes in the United States and the suicide that’s attempted every 43 seconds. In each video, the director stands next to a tree, silent, for 17 minutes, and at the end of the time, falls to the ground. He uses the time to reflect on life and the life of his brother, who killed himself.

It’s a quiet, introspective project that helps bring peace to the man who’s doing it and I’m glad he’s decided to share his 17 minutes with the rest of us.
