Production Company HBO Films/GDH Productions/Vermillion Films/Directed by Irene Taylor Brodsky
One in 7 American children will experience the death of a loved one before the age of 20. Sadly, few are prepared to deal with the grief that follows.
From profound sadness and heartbreak to confusion and anger, a child’s grief can be devastating. It can also be lonely. At a time in life when fitting in is important, grief can make kids feel different and isolated from their peers. Fortunately, there’s a place where grieving children can go to be understood.
ONE LAST HUG (…and a few smooches) Three Days at Grief Camp is an unflinching documentary short film set at Camp Erin – a sleep-over summer camp where grieving children of all ethnicities find comfort in one another to deal with their pain. Under the guidance of grief professionals, kids learn that their feelings are normal – and that by talking about them they can begin to heal. With unprecedented access, ONE LAST HUG illuminates the effects of death and grief on children. Its inspiring and emotional journey is intimate, cathartic, and testament to the healing power of friendship and support.
Winner of the 2014 Emmy for Outstanding Children's Programming, ONE LAST HUG (...and a few smooches) screened on HBO.
