SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2016 AT 8:00 PM
THE GENE SISKEL FILM CENTER, CHICAGO
In conjunction with the Third Annual International Resilience Summit (Nov. 2-3), the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle is proud to present the Chicago premiere of RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS & THE SCIENCE OF HOPE. Director James Redford will appear in person to discuss the film and a panel will commence after the film. Judge Clark Erickson, from the Kankakee area and Audrey Soglin, Executive Director of the Illinois Education Association will be featured panelists.
RESILIENCE documents 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 child may not remember, but the body remembers.”
RESILIENCE delves into the science, treatment and prevention of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), a leading cause of medical diseases ranging from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression. What’s predictable is preventable.
