About this Event

Weaving together moving interviews and rare archival footage, The Kids We Lose portrays, for the first time on film, the journey of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, their caregivers, and their collective struggles at various ages. The kids don’t understand why they’re being mistreated and manhandled or why they’re unable to change course…they just think it’s their fault. Their desperate and discouraged parents hope there’s a better way, but have been on the long road of looking for right help for way too long. Classroom teachers feel ill equipped to help these kids, and have time constraints, high-stakes tests, overcrowded classrooms, budget cuts, and zero tolerance policies interfering with their efforts to retain their patience and compassion under impossible conditions. The entire picture is one of alienation, disenfranchisement, marginalization, and despair.
