“Edmonton’s High Level Bridge is a frequent spot for suicides. Trevor Anderson documents the bridge’s history and its place in collective psychology with insight and wit. Finding humour in dark territory, The High Level Bridge showcases chilling shots of the North Saskatchewan River, and pays homage to the people and events surrounding an odd landmark. The film culminates in a final enigmatic jump - a brilliant cinematic gesture.” - Magali Simard, Toronto International Film Festival
