Films of Interest

Tonight the West Woodland PTA is having a screening of the film, The Kids We Lose, starting at 6:15 pm.

The Kids We Lose is a 90-minute documentary film about the human side of being a child or student with behavioral challenges, and the struggles faced by parents, educators, staff in facilities, mental health clinicians, and law enforcement professionals in trying to ensure that these kids receive the help they need. The Kids We Lose also exposes the often brutal, inhumane ways in which kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges are treated in schools, inpatient psychiatry units, residential facilities, and prisons.
Reserve your spot for LIKE: a documentary about the impact of social media on our lives!

LIKE is an IndieFlix Original documentary that explores the impact of social media on our lives and the effects of technology on the brain. The goal of the film is to inspire and help equip us to self-regulate. Social media is a tool and social platforms are a place to connect, share, and care … but is that what's really happening?

Rotten Tomatoes gave Angst a 12 for lack of purpose and poor production quality.

Just Saying

AnxMom said...

I watched Angst and it was worth watching. It helps make the connection between avoidance behavior and an anxiety disorder (as opposed to regular old non-disordered anxiety). And it highlights that students with anxiety often have a parent with some form of anxiety. It also shows how treatable it is if you have good insurance or $$$. And it shows one teen doing one of his behavioral therapy sessions and it didn't look to scary (he went clothes shopping with his therapist). Basically it showed how anxiety could become really limiting to students and how it was hard sometimes to figure out that anxiety was what was actually the problem but how treatable the anxiety is and how much better things can be.

Since most schools are showing the movie in their cafetoriums, the bigger issue than production quality is seating quality if you ask me.

Angst was shown at WMS and had a very negative impact on many students and some of those students had to leave the room. The VR induced panic attacks are reckless and actionable. Seattle public school children are not experiments. Take some time and follow the funding of Angst and you might be surprised what you find.

Uh, yeah. There's more than one thing called Angst. If your middle school PTA hosted Angst: The Panic Attack, that's kind of messed up. That one is a 7-minute long virtual reality app that runs on Google Cardboard. I was talking about the documentary Angst: Anxiety is Treatable (https://angstmovie.com/), which I would totally recommend to other PTAs.

So, to summarize: don't run psychiatric experiments on your students with VR apps, but do consider sharing the documentary about how treatable anxiety disorders can be.
