AWI Sanctuary Space presents: “Sticks and Stones” Watch Party
An ongoing Continued Connections program that creates virtual spaces for students to connect at the intersection of art and mental health.
Join us for a virtual watch party and filmmaker Q&A as we screen and celebrate our January 2022 short film competition winner: “Sticks and Stones”.
About the film:
An unexpected and violent event changes the course of a young man’s life as he realizes he is not the person he wishes to be. Through therapy and meditative drawing, he learns to identify the differences between anxiety and depression and the toxic masculinity that haunted his childhood.
