On Tuesday the 14th of August from 4-6pm, SFX will be showing the film “Resilience” in the College theatre.
The trailer for the film can be watched at the following link.
According to the website about the film, “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.”
We will have a Q and A / Discussion session as part of the two-hour viewing.
The film has been receiving great feedback and screenings have been selling out in other areas of Canberra.
Students from SFX and also staff, teachers and parents from other schools are welcome to attend.
We are just asking for a gold coin donation to go the Hope Project (www.thehopeprojectnow.com)
