USF to Present Screening of Troubled Teen Documentary

March 16, 2017

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — The University of Saint Francis Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences is presenting a special screening of the documentary “Paper Tigers” on Tuesday, April 11 at 6 p.m. in the USF North Campus auditorium, 2702 Spring Street.

“Paper Tigers” shares the stories of vulnerable teens who have endured multiple Adverse Childhood Experiences, also called ACEs. Their narratives are situated within complex and contradictory social worlds pitting extreme inequality against traditional norms of social behavior. This documentary demonstrates the power of unconditional love to shape the lives of the powerless and marginalized.

The screening is free and open to the public, and it is presented in partnership with Great KIDS make Great COMMUNITIES. For more information, contact USF Professor of Sociology and Social Justice Dr. David Mullins at dmullins@sf.edu or 260.399.7700, ext. 8133.

This documentary is not appropriate for children.
