Finding “Finding Kind” at BHS Theatre

“Finding Kind” is a film about tween and teenage girls and the bullying and unkindnesses they are capable of bringing down upon each other. The film documents the 10,000 mile cross-country journey of Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson, two first-time filmmakers and both teen victims of “mean girls,” to interview girls who have suffered at the hands of other girls’ meanness. The film won Student Choice Award at the Sprockets Toronto International Film Festival and Best Documentary Feature at the Palm Beach Women’s International Film Festival, and it was recently nominated for the Social Justice Award for Documentary Film. And you have a chance to see it right here on the rock.

Finding Kind: Parsekian and Thompson

Filmmakers Parsekian and Thompson at a middle school assembly in California.

Two Bainbridge Cooperative Nursery School (BCNS) board members with children at the preschool were looking for a creative way to raise funds and they came up with the idea of BCNS sponsoring a showing of “Finding Kind.” Because of its subject matter, they felt the film would also be a good fit for Bainbridge Youth Services (BYS) and their mission, so they approached the organization. BYS was excited to get on board as the event facilitator, citing cyberbullying as a special concern at the High School among girls.

The film will be shown at Bainbridge High School Theatre (LGI). Screenings are November 9th at 5:00 and 7:30 p.m. (the film is 77 minutes long). A BYS counselor will introduce the film and will lead a discussion immediately following each screening. BYS will also have a table in the lobby with local resources regarding girl-on-girl bullying. Fifty percent of all proceeds from the screening will go to BCNS.

The movie is appropriate for adults and kids eleven and older. There is some discussion of suicide in the movie. Here is the film’s trailer:
