In 2013, nearly three and a half years after CJ Twomey's suicide in 2010, his mother Hallie Twomey turned to social media for support. [1] Hallie put out an open call on Facebook, looking for a handful of travelers who might help fulfill her son's wish to see the world by scattering some of his ashes in a place of meaning.

The Facebook page grew into an online community with nearly 21,000 members,[2] with 12,000 people offering to scatter CJ's ashes.[3] Volunteers have since taken and scattered CJ in more than 1,000 unique locations worldwide. His family's story has been covered on television and in newspapers around the globe.


The film will premiere at the Camden International Film Festival in September 2019.[1]

According to the Lewiston Sun Journal, "[Director Andrea] Kalin has also sent the documentary to other festivals for consideration...[and] hopes to roll out the films to communities, military organizations and college campuses."[1]


The official Scattering CJ trailer had its world premiere at the Facebook 2019 Global Safety and Wellness Summit on May 15, 2019. [4] Hallie Twomey spoke to a worldwide audience about the Scattering CJ project and film.
