The Suicide Bridge Movie

A filmaker ends up with footage of 19 deaths by people jumping off what is regarded as the world's No. 1 suicide landmark.

"The film project was proposed as a 'monuments documentary' intended to 'capture the grandeur' of the Golden Gate Bridge. But after a year, filmmaker Eric Steel ended up with footage of 19 deaths and several attempts by people who wanted to end their lives by jumping off what is regarded as the world's No. 1 suicide landmark."
