Trauma knows no boundaries. Anyone, regardless of socioeconomic status, race/ethnicity, age, gender, or sexual orientation, might experience trauma.
RESILIENCE: The Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope is the latest film from documentary Director-Producer James Redford and Executive Producer Karen Pritzker. The film premiered in January 2016 at the Sundance Film Festival to sold-out audiences and received high acclaim, traveling around the world and sparking community dialogues, action plans and trauma-informed practices that address childhood trauma.
In the aftermath of Oprah Winfrey’s 60 Minutes segment and in support of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, KPJR Films would like to both broaden and deepen the national conversation around Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the impact of childhood trauma on a global scale, including a live post-screening Twitter Townhall Q&A featuring leading national and international experts working across the sector.
RESILIENCE, and companion film PAPER TIGERS, are proven, innovative media tools used to build awareness and provide additional education about ACEs and shows the impact of child abuse and neglect in communities across the country. PAPER TIGERS follows a year in the life of an alternative high school that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, becoming a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families. While RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS & THE SCIENCE OF HOPE is a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent toxic stress, which is now understood to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, toxic stress and extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior.
