An indiefix documentary: Angst

PTO proudly presents...

On Friday, February 23rd, the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students will see the movie Angst. Angst is a 56-minute film and virtual reality experience that explores anxiety, its causes, effects and what we can do about it. The filmmakers’ goal is to have a global conversation and raise awareness around anxiety. Angst features candid interviews with kids and young adults who suffer, or have suffered, from anxiety and what they’ve learned about it.  

After the movie, the students will be engaging in a debrief discussion about the film in their Flex classes.  Please click HERE to learn more.

Attention Parents: If you are interested in viewing Angst, Twin Groves will be hosting a screening on Thursday, February 22nd at 7PM in the Learning Center.
