added: Thu, Sep 14th '17

A trailer has been released for "Kingdom of Us," the new original Netflix documentary that chronicles a British family's struggle to cope with the aftermath of a traumatic suicide.

Shot for over three years, first-time documentary filmmaker Lucy Cohen gets an intimate look at a grieving family who were left to pick up the shattered pieces of their lives when their father fell into a deep depression before taking his own life.

Featuring heartbreakingly candid interviews and personal home video footage, "Kingdom of Us" is a moving portrait of a family's resilience in times of tragedy.

The film will debut on Netflix on October 13th.

How does a family deal with memories of a traumatic event? It's a question sensitively examined in this moving documentary. In her quietly watchful debut, Lucy Cohen impresses with a delicate, powerfully effective exploration of grief, identity, and family bonds. For over three years, Cohen filmed a mother and her seven children -- whose father’s suicide left them financially ruined. Incorporating family archive footage and capturing the surrounding West Midlands landscape, Kingdom of Us records the siblings' emotional recovery, piecing together their broken past and contemplating fears and aspirations for their future. Cohen's film highlights youthful power and resilience, as the family travel the rocky road towards hope.
