Finding Kind is a powerful film that raises awareness of and fosters change within the "girl world" of bullying. In this powerful documentary, individual girls and woman share their personal experiences about girl-on-girl bullying and the universal truths about growing up as girls.
In Finding Kind, filmmakers Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson set out in a cross-country journey of discovery and education.
Interviewing women and girls along the way about their lives and experiences, Parsekian and Thompson found, among all of the unique personal stories, some universal truths about growing up as girls. Finding Kind is a documentary of that journey, and of the filmmakers' quest to take these experiences and 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 respected experts and authors in the fields of psychology, education, and the interrelationships of women and girls.
Due to certain language and content, Finding Kind is recommended for students in and above middle school (11 years old and up). It is appropriate for both female and male audiences.
