"Kathy Leichter does that rare thing in art and film-making.  She translates what is harrowing and inexplicable -- in this case, her mother Nina's decision to end her life -- into something beautiful and meaning-filled.  I've seen people react to "Here One Day" and it goes beyond the normal relationship of audience to documentary.  She's offering a kind of guide post toward thinking about mental illness and suicide in new, more constructive ways."
