Think back to your childhood. Memories of ice cream cones, skipping rope, making mud pies and climbing trees come flooding back. But not all children have such wonderful experiences and memories. Many are subject-ed to repeated and never-ending stress. This “toxic stress” as documentary filmmaker James Redford has found, effects these children’s biology leading to adult disorders such as heart disease, cancer, and obesity and potentially decreasing life expectancy by as much as 20 years. His new film, “Resilience,” educates and enlightens the viewer not only to the well-documented science be-hind the problem, but also to the easy solutions that work.
“Resilience” is a fascinating documentary that elo-quently explains the health-care issues that confront us directly and indirectly on a daily basis. But more than that, “Resilience” gives us the solution to this problem. Rarely do you find a documentary that high-lights a problem and gives a solution.
It’s a film every educator, health care provider, and lawmaker should see.
