MOVIES THAT MATTER partners with Door County Partnership for Children and Families Screening: Paper Tigers

December’s Movies that Matters presents, Paper Tigers, on Tuesday, December 18, 4:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County in Ephraim. The film focuses on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Trauma Informed Care (TIC). Candis Dart, Coordinator of the Door County Partnership for Children and Families, will lead a discussion after the film. This screening will help us learn more about these important topics, and how we can support others in our community. The intended audience is adults, however teens may attend with a parent.

Paper Tigers (2015, 102 minutes) films a year at Lincoln Alternative High School. The school took a different approach to student discipline after their principal, Jim Sporleder, found out about the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study.

Before implementing what they had learned from the study, Lincoln H.S. struggled with student violence, drugs, and truancy. With the understanding that “stressed brains can’t learn” and new tactics towards discipline, Lincoln H.S. was able to decrease student violence and saw a fivefold increase in their graduation rate.

This film sponsorship is part of a Mental Health Film Series brought to you by the Door County Partnership for Children and Families, Door County Mental Health Focus Group, Door County Public Health Department, and the Door County Alcohol and Other Drug Coalition.

About the Movies that Matter Series: The film is part of the UUFDC’s monthly Movies That Matter series examining a wide range of issues. The free screenings are followed by a discussion. Donations to help defray the costs of public performance licensing are appreciated. The series invites consciousness and intellectual inquiry, which is philosophically in tune with Unitarian Universalists beliefs. The UUFDC Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42 in north Ephraim.
