Angst: Breaking the Stigma Around Anxiety

Direc­tor: Matt Sker­ritt

This fas­ci­nat­ing doc­u­men­tary and vir­tu­al real­i­ty expe­ri­ence was pro­duced by Scil­la Andreen, who also pro­duced Screenagers (a film that was fea­tured at last year’s Fri­day Har­bor Film Fes­ti­val).

Angst takes an in-depth look at anx­i­ety — its caus­es and effects — and explores what we can do about it. Angst fea­tures inter­views with kids and young adults who suf­fer or have suf­fered from anx­i­ety, and who are will­ing to talk about their expe­ri­ences and what they have learned. The film also includes experts com­mit­ted to help­ing peo­ple man­age their anx­i­ety, and those who focus on research­ing its caus­es and soci­o­log­i­cal effects, offer­ing tools and resources that pro­vide hope.

The doc­u­men­tary exam­ines the chal­lenges of anx­i­ety in a way that is always inti­mate, hon­est and acces­si­ble. Pri­or to the film, the audi­ence will be giv­en spe­cial glass­es to par­tic­i­pate in a vir­tu­al real­i­ty expe­ri­ence.

A pan­el dis­cus­sion by experts will fol­low this film.
