Paper Tigers Film Screenings - Nov.10-13

From November 10 to 13, 2015 the Illinois ACE Response Collaborative – a diverse group of organizations and agencies committed to expanding and deepening the understanding of the impact of childhood trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on the health and wellbeing of Illinois residents and their communities—welcomed over 500 community members for five local screenings of the critically-acclaimed documentary Paper Tigers.

From Director James Redford and Executive Producer Karen Pritzker, Paper Tigers follows a year in the life of an alternative high school in Walla Walla, WA, that used the science and framework of adverse childhood experiences, or ACEs, to radically change its approach to student relationships and discipline, and in the process has become a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families.
