Resilience – must see documentary film: 14th May

On 14th May, 7.30 pm Zebra Collective & Plymouth Radical Cinema are collaborating to present Resilience – an influential documentary that explains just how much of an impact emotional trauma can have, drawing upon ground-breaking research on adverse childhood experiences – ACEs

The film provides a guide to how we, as individuals and in our communities, can tackle trauma – to minimise its incidence and to respond helpfully to those who have experienced it.

This is the first public screening of Resilience in Plymouth. We’re showing it in collaboration with Plymouth Radical Film: facebook.com/plymouthradicalcinema
