Their Own Life

Best Feature Documentary
The heart-gripping Their Own Life portrays three persons who survived a period of serious longing for suicide. Kris van der Veen was bullied in high school so intensely in his Christian community in the far north of the Netherlands, that he tried to take his life with pills when he was only 14 years old. Transgender woman Solange Dekker experienced no understanding of her narrow-minded family members and jumped off a high bridge twice. And Jean Passos heard from his Brazilian family he as possessed by the devil after coming out as gay.
