Virtual Screening: THE NEW NORMAL + Q&A with Director Codi Barbini
As we already know, we are living through a “new normal” now. But in the past we have had to deal with other “new normals”, one being the horrific mass shootings at schools, the shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999 being one of the earliest in many people’s memories and the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida in 2018 being one of the most recent.
The film THE NEW NORMAL intimately follows five student survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, Gabby, Nicole, Daniel, Brandon, and Kelsey, as they cope with finishing the school year and the year beyond. It is a testament to the resilience of youth and the trauma inflicted on students and may give us a helpful perspective, as young people around the world are forced to deal with the present “New Normal”!
Running Time: 75 min
The virtual screening will include an “especially-made-for-PJDS” recorded Q&A with director Codi Barbini, moderated by Tom Needham, the host of Tom Needham’s The Sounds of Film on WUSB radio.
