Resilience Film Screening - Hull Minster - Kingston upon Hull

This is the beginning of a movement to raise awareness of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). There will a screening of the film "Resilience - the biology of stress and the science of hope" followed by a discussion with a panel of experts.Think back to your childhood. Memories of ice cream cones, riding bikes, making mud pies and climbing trees come flooding back. But not all children have such wonderful experiences and memories. Many are subjected to repeated and neverending stress. This “toxic stress” as documentary filmmaker James Redford has found, effects these children’s biology leading to adult disorders such as heart disease, cancer, and obesity and potentially decreasing life expectancy by as much as 20 years. His new film, “Resilience,” educates and enlightens the viewer not only to the well-documented science behind the problem, but also to the easy solutions that work. “Resilience” is a fascinating documentary that eloquently explains the health-care issues that confront us directly and indirectly on a daily basis. But more than that, “Resilience” gives us the solution to this problem. Rarely do you find a documentary that highlights a problem and gives a solution. It’s a film every educator, health care provider, social worker and lawmaker should see.
