Fort Bend ISD to host free screening of documentary, Angst: Raising Awareness around Anxiety (9/10/2019)

Event takes place Monday, September 16 at 6:00 p.m. in Clements High School’s auditorium


FORT BEND ISD (September 10, 2019) – Fort Bend ISD’s Counseling and Postsecondary Readiness Department is collaborating with IndieFlix to present a free screening of the documentary, Angst: Raising Awareness around Anxiety. The event will take place Monday, September 16 in Clements High School’s auditorium (4200 Elkins Road, Sugar Land 77479), beginning at 6:00 p.m. The event will feature a viewing of the 56-minute film, followed by an informative discussion led by FBISD School Counselor Coordinators Kelly Fox and Carlete Metoyer. Free tickets are available and space is limited. Click here to reserve your tickets.


Producers Scilla Andreen and Karin Gornick created the film to start community conversations about anxiety and provide families with tools, resources and hope in dealing with the issue. Through candid interviews, they utilize the power of film to tell the stories of many kids and teens who discuss their anxiety and its impacts on their lives and relationships, as well as how they have found solutions and hope.


While “Angst” documents the struggles some people have with anxiety, it also reveals their hope for the future. Noah, a teenager in the film, describes it this way: “Anxiety doesn’t define me. It’s not just a curse; it also gives me strength.” 


We hope you can join us for this special screening of this documentary.
