Did you know that research has shown that bullying is a major contributor to the increase in suicide attempts among teenagers (CDC, 2022)? This sobering fact underscores the importance of addressing this issue.
“Rahasia Punya Rahasia” is a web series produced by 13 Nadi Cinema, adapted from the book “Suicide Knot” by author Vie Asano. This limited series, available on YouTube, delves into the story of Karen, a teenage character on a journey to uncover the truth behind the death of her friend, Anne. Anne was a victim of bullying at school and tragically took her own life.
As part of the Margocity Bookmarked event, Sudah Dong had the privilege of participating in a talk show alongside Pak Gio, Executive Producer of 13 Nadi Cinema, and Vie Asano. During the discussion, Pak Gio emphasized the series’ significance, particularly for teenagers, and its potential to serve as a powerful illustration of the grave consequences of bullying through the medium of entertainment.
This collaboration between 13 Nadi Cinema and Sudah Dong highlights the commitment to raising awareness about bullying and its severe implications, especially in the context of teenage mental health. Through “Rahasia Punya Rahasia,” it is hoped that viewers will gain a deeper understanding of the pressing issue of bullying and its consequences, ultimately fostering a more compassionate and supportive environment for young people.
