Have you ever been through a bad breakup where you hated the world AND yourself?
This film explores what that’s like. It’s an anti-romantic comedy by Toronto’s very own mathematician turned filmmaker Curt Jaimungal. If you’re expecting a v-day rom com with mental health fluff as filler, this event is not for you.
We’re going to watch the film, talk about mental health, and think about what we as Torontonians need to do to support each other and do better.
Let’s keep the conversation on mental health going beyond #BellLetsTalk!
