DEFYING THE 6TH

The movie

Each year 42,773 Americans die by suicide, that number continues to rise every year and the death toll as well. Below are the top 10 cause of suicides:

  1. 1. Mental illness

  2. 2. Traumatic Experience

  3. 3. Bullying

  4. 4. Personality disorder

  5. 5. Drug Addiction / Substance Abuse

  6. 6. Eating Disorder

  7. 7. Unemployment

  8. 8. Social Isolation / Loneliness

  9. 9. Relationship problems

  10. 10. Genetics / Family History

These cover the leading causes of deaths by suicide in recent times. Suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for ages 10-24 and 25-35.

Suicide Threats: Either Direct or Indirect Statements

People who talk about suicide, threaten suicide or call suicide crisis lines are 30 times more likely than average to kill themselves. So we have to take suicide threats seriously.

“I’d be better off dead.”

“I won’t be bothering you much longer.”

”You’ll be better off without me around.”

“I hate my life.”

“I am going to kill myself.”

Suicide threats are not always verbal.

  • Text messages

  • Social networks

  • Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc

Not only do these deaths affect the family and friends of the victims it also affects the economy of a nation. Suicide costs the US $ 44 Billion annually.


With numbers and statistic like these, shading more light on the issue will be more than a noble gesture but could save a life and spare a family the grieve of losing a loved one prematurely.

So, Zeallmatic Pictures decided to do a film; “DEFYING THE 6TH” in an attempt to shade light on the things we ignore that could just be what will save a life.

We picked the top 4 causes of suicide above and expanded on them, using events and experiences that are easily relatable with the average person.

Death of loved ones, bullying, personality disorder, rape and sexual abuse: These are what our lead characters: Khalid Mork, Olivia Tabot, Cynthia Esong, Camille Nayara and Patrick Malusi Dingane are dealing with individually and resort to suicide by each other after several unsuccessful attempts.

After the production of this film, a portion of our profits will go to an organization that is geared at helping individuals suffering with suicidal ideations find their way and hopefully save a live.
