The Sycamore School, Arlington Magazine, and Moms of North Arlington are proud to co-sponsor a community screening of the documentary Finding Kind. This award-winning documentary is the result of hundreds of interviews of women across America by the filmmakers Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson. The documentary finds among all these personal accounts, there are universal truths about the pressures of being a girl and that those pressures can take a toll on our relationships with other women. By entering school hallways and talking with hundreds of students, Lauren and Molly learn how bullying is evolving and the life-threatening impact it can have. The journey is sprinkled with hysterical moments as they attempt to conquer the road and everything America has to offer. While there are plenty of fun moments, their emotional roller coaster around the country reveals shockingly raw and personal stories. With the goal of establishing a national school program for girls, Lauren and Molly hope to put an end to the hate and Find Kind.
The evening is designed for female students age 10 and older to attend in conjunction with a parent or adult caregiver. Following the screening, Yvette Mitchell, LCSW, will be leading a discussion about the documentary.
