Documentary Review #1: FINDING KIND

MDF has certainly seen their fair share of documentaries these past few months and apparently, we still can't seem to get enough of them which is why we are now dedicating the next few Tuesdays  to the documentary genre. And while they often portray sensitive and realistic subject matter, we at MDF are particularly fond of the 'movement documentary' which, is why we are today, focusing onFinding Kind. A definite good-deed-campaign which, exemplifies the passion of the two filmmakers Lauren Parsekian and Molly Stroud. Their movement started with promoting the simplistic act of being kind by ending the way-too-often viscious cycle of girl-bullying and the mean-girl-syndrome from friendships and in schools. We first met this BFF pair of inspirational gals during their film festival circuit at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in February, as they spoke with great passion about their cross-country journey to schools and sororities where they met with thousands of girls to help mend friendships. Even more exciting, is that these recent Pepperdine film grads got picked up for a theatre showing which will premiere next month! But before then, you can also catch them this Sunday at the Newport Beach Film Festival if you're in the area. So, we encourage all you gals to gather 'round, step into the 'Truth Booth' and go see this very poignant movie that will surely change the way females interact and connect with each other. Be sure to watch the trailer and to also follow their campaign on Facebook and see if they might be coming to a school near you. More importantly, remember that a little kindness goes a long way.
