“In light of the Sundance Film Festival that is currently underway, Resilience, a documentary that looks at the CDC-Kaiser Permanente Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Study premiered to sold out audiences. (Not bad for a film whose director wasn’t even planning on submitting it to the festival.) The film features interviews with several leaders in the ACEs movement both nationally and in communities. Resilience is the second documentary directed by James Redford that addresses ACEs. The first film, Paper Tigers, following six students through a school year at the first trauma-informed high school in the US. Paper Tigers premiered last year at Sundance and has since been screening around the country to sold-out audiences.”
More information about the films at the festival that are focused on education and healthy child development can be found here.
