AWI Voices With Impact presents: Children and Grief
Facilitated by: Chaun Lewis-Green
- Six Feet Apart by Monty Cole
- Once Upon a Time by Athena Russell
- Paper Planes by Sina Sultani
Our experiences in childhood shape our outlooks and expectations for the rest of our lives. When tragedy befalls children, their options for processing and managing their grief are limited both by their lack of experience and the powerlessness they have over their own circumstances. In this session we will watch three short films that will create space for us to explore questions about how children experience and process grief. Together, along with filmmakers Monty Cole, Athena Russell, and Sina Sultani, we will explore this complex topic through the lenses of storytelling, analogy, and escape.
Led by the filmmakers, the festival features a selection of interactive seminars and engaging discussions, related to the films and the themes we are exploring through this year’s program. If you are interested in learning about these sessions, you can see them all on our Voices With Impact information page!
