The Community Foundation of North Louisiana and Step Forward will host a screening of RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS & THE SCIENCE OF HOPE, a documentary that chronicles the birth of a new movement among pediatricians, therapists, educators and communities, who are using cutting-edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease. The screening of the critically-acclaimed documentary will take place November 1 from 5:30-7:00 pm at the Robinson Film Center.
David J. Fowlie, film critic for Keeping it Reel says “It’s a film that is necessary viewing for a deeper knowledge of what you or others have gone through in life and also serves to enlighten us closer to a greater empathy and understanding for others in our community.”
