This documentary explores anxiety, its causes and effects, and what we can do about it. See candid interviews with kids, teens, educators, experts and parents about anxiety and tools to help. Angst Producers Scilla Andreen and Karin Gornick state one goal: to start a global conversation and raise awareness around anxiety. They utilize the power of film to tell the stories of many kids and teens who discuss their anxiety and its impacts on their lives and relationships, as well as how they’ve found solutions and hope.
Ages 11 and up welcome.
The filmmakers offer the following guidance for families considering bringing children (ages 11 and up) to the film: If you think your child is experiencing anxiety or depression, this film may be especially helpful for them to see as it provides an understanding of why anxiety happens in our bodies and shows there is help and hope for treating symptoms. If you bring your child, the experience of watching the film is a wonderful way to start a conversation together. Plan to discuss or process it afterwards in a way that works for your child. The film is designed to be shown to both students and parents, separately or together.
