Public Schools First NC is proud to partner with KPJR Films to host a screening of the film BROKEN PLACES on April 6th, 10pm – 11pm on PBS.
Here is how to view the film:
ABOUT THE FILM: https://brokenplacesfilm.com/#!/director
BROKEN PLACES explores why some children are severely damaged by early adversity while others are able to thrive.
By revisiting some of the abused and neglected children we profiled decades ago, we’re able to dramatically illustrate how early trauma shaped their lives as adults. BROKEN PLACES interweaves these longitudinal narratives with commentary from a few nationally renowned experts to help viewers better understand the devastating impact of childhood adversity as well as the inspiring characteristics of resilience.
