Director Statement

1813 is not just a number, it is the suicide helpline in Belgium. It remains a taboo that is still not discussed enough. Especially for men, it remains challenging to say, "Fuck, I'm feeling bad." It is the statistics that have motivated me to create this film, but it is the experiences and encounters throughout the process that have truly inspired me. My hope with this film is to make it a topic of conversation because it is genuinely necessary in our society. Talking and listening, it can truly make a difference.
