About the Events

Childhood Matters 

Film Series 2016-2017

 

 

OCTOBER 5 2016 - PAPER TIGERS    (TRAILER)

Paper Tigers is an intimate look into the lives of selected students at Lincoln High School, an   alternative    school that specializes in educating traumatized youth. Set amidst the rural community of Walla Walla, WA, the film intimately examines the inspiring promise of Trauma Informed Communities - a movement that is showing great promise in healing youth struggling with the dark legacy of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES).

 

 

 

 

 

 

OCTOBER 26 2016 - ROOM TO BREATHE   (TRAILER)

Room to Breathe is a surprising story of transformation as struggling kids in a San Francisco public middle school are introduced to the practice of mindfulness meditation. Topping the district in disciplinary suspensions, and with overcrowded classrooms creating a nearly impossible learning environment, overwhelmed administrators are left with stark choices. Do they repeat the cycle of forcing tuned-­out children to listen, or experiment with a set of age-­old inner practices that may provide them with the social, emotional, and attentional skills that they need to succeed?

2017 FILMS - DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED

 

 

APRIL 27 2017 - RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS & THE SCIENCE OF HOPE   (TRAILER)

 

       “The child may not remember, but the body remembers.”

 

 

Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the new documentary Resilience reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune.  Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress—and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.
