JOHN ABBOTT COLLEGE HOSTING AWARD WINNING DOCUMENTARY “RESILIENCE” 



Who:

The public and media are invited to join the screening of Resilience, free of charge. Resilience is a docu-fiction based on the real-life stories of 15 young people who have faced adversity in their involvement with the Youth Protection and/or Youth Criminal Justice Systems. 

What:

Film Synopsis: Human, touching and real, the medium-length docu-fiction is based on the real-life stories of 15 youth who have faced adversity in the Youth Protection System since their early childhood or who were involved with the Youth Criminal Justice System. Our 7 protagonists, aged 14-17, of diverse cultural backgrounds, living in different neighborhoods around Montreal, in English and in French, wrestle with abuse and neglect, isolation, bullying, confusion around sexual orientation and cultural identity, violence, confrontation with the law, rejection and abandonment. They are honest, dramatic, exuberant, enraged, resilient and touching all at once. Full of unanswered questions and not knowing where to turn, they find strength in themselves to surmount unimaginable obstacles, finding their way, little by little, one day at a time.

When:

Thursday, April 4 2024 at 5:30 p.m.
