Paper Tigers will premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) at 7 PM Thursday, May 28, 2015, at the SIFF Cinema Uptown in Seattle, WA. SIFF is the largest and most highly attended festival in the U.S.
Paper Tigers follows a year in the life of an alternative high school in Walla Walla, WA, that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, and in the process has become a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families. A story about the school was published on this site in 2012: Lincoln High School in Walla Walla, WA, tries new approach to school discipline; suspensions drop 85%
An additional screening will take place at 12:30 PM on Saturday, May 30 at the same location. For ticket information and other details: http://www.siff.net/festival-2015/paper-tigers
The documentary was directed by James Redford. Its executive producer is Karen Pritzker. To view a trailer of the movie, go to PaperTigersMovie.com.
Who can I contact to learn more about screening locations?
Sign up for emails at the Paper Tigers web site. Around the beginning of August, there will be an announcement about screenings. I expect that there will be information on the site about upcoming screenings, and we’ll be listing them on ACEsConnection.com, too. (ACEsConnection, a community of practice social network for people who are implementing practices based on ACEs research, is the companion site to ACEsTooHigh.com.)
