Angst

An IndieFlix original documentary

Alameda High School, Little Theater, 2200 Central Ave, Alameda

Anxiety isn’t cool, but talking about it is.

Angst is a 56-minute film 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.  The film includes discussions with mental health experts about the causes of anxiety, its sociological effects and how to get help.

Families, educators, students, employees and members of any community will benefit from this film.

For parents, caregivers, educators and students 11 years+ (Appropriate for age 11 years+. Under age 11 viewer discretion advised.)

Ever wonder what happens at Coffee with Cammie? Besides the coffee, tea and goodies, there is great conversation.

Topics so far have included: how to make pick up/drop off safer, books about raising teenagers, screens and teens, homework, budget cuts, and so much more.

Come to the next one on March 2nd, 8:20 am in the Media Center and add your voice to the conversation!
