Program Descriptions

Grades 1-3

We can often feel alone when experiencing complex yet universal emotions such as fear, excitement, confusion, sadness and joy. These films focus on navigating through a range of emotions to strengthen the relationship with yourself and others around you.

Tuesday, November 19 from 9:30-11:00am

Thursday, November 21 from 1:30-3:00pm

Grades 4-6

What does it mean to be "strong"? Featuring characters facing the challenges posed by oppressive attitudes towards immigration, race, and ability, these narratives show us the complicated journey to staying true to who you are despite your circumstances. This program provides an understanding beyond the physical definition through tales of resistance, independence and confidence.

Tuesday, November 19 from 1:30-3:00pm

Wednesday, November 20 from 1:30-3:00pm

Grades 7-8

Has there been an event in your life that significantly shifted your perspectives? This program explores narratives of individuals and communities at the brink of an impactful event or decision. Factors such as racism, gender and socio-economic status all contribute to the way in which they begin to understand their place in the world and how to gain agency through their choice.

Wednesday, November 20 from 9:30-11:00am

Thursday, November 21 from 9:30-11:00am
