LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - An Arkansan has found her own way to raise awareness of the effect of suicide in the state. 

Summer Moody is the founder of a new film "This Too Shall Pass." As the writer of the movie, she hopes to bring alive the seriousness of suicide and depression that plagues individuals across the U.S. Summer's goal with the film is to shed light on the truth of suicide and the effect it has on those left behind as well as the healing process. 

Tom Logan, award-winning feature film director with the Director's Guild of America, has signed on to be the director of the film. 

Logan will be holding an acting class/casting call on May 23 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. It will be held at The Joint Theatre and Coffeehouse in the Argenta District in North Little Rock. You must register to attend. If you are interested, click here

The next night, May 24, advocates of the film will be holding "The REEL Gala." This will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Greg Thompson's Fine Art Gallery in the Argenta District. This will be a big night for the film because they hope to raise additional funds to further push this film into the big leagues. 

Filming will be done in parts of Arkansas and Shreveport, La.
