Lewisville ISD is hosting a movie screening for IndieFlix’s critically acclaimed “Finding Kind,” a documentary that provides an informative look into today’s girl world.
The showing of “Finding Kind” will be at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 9, at Lewisville High School’s Leo C. Stuver Auditorium, 1098 W. Main St. The event was rescheduled from early March due to inclement weather.
Admission for the event is free with limited seating. A discussion on the issues explored in the film will follow the screening.
In “Finding Kind,” filmmakers Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson set out in a cross-country journey of discovery and education by interviewing women and girls along the way about their lives and experiences. Parsekian and Thompson find, among the many personal stories, universal truths about growing up as girls.
“Finding Kind” is a document of their journey and of the filmmakers’ quest to take the experiences to find a common ground of kindness and mutual respect. In addition to all of the individual girls and women who share their personal experiences about girl-on-girl bullying with the filmmakers, Parsekian and Thompson include interviews with experts and authors in psychology, education and the interrelationships of women and girls.
“Finding Kind provides an opportunity for mothers and daughters to share time learning about the sometimes complicated relationships between women starting during adolescence,” LHS-Killough Principal Pam Flores said in a news release. “Girls can sometimes be a girl’s worst enemy. Mothers and daughters can share personal stories about the truths of growing up and find a common ground of kindness and mutual respect for women. This program reminds of us of who we are and who we should strive to be as women.”
The film, which is 77 minutes long, is not available in theaters or on cable.
