Join us at the Block Cinema for a cinematic evening to remember, featuring the film "Jade," followed by an expert-led Q&A and panel discussion!

Presented by Tinheart Productions in collaboration with the Center for Child Trauma Treatment, Assessment, and Systems Integration (CCTASSI), Jade is a 18-minute short film that portrays a fictionalized black high school student, also the child of an immigrant, as she attempts to confront and cope with systemic and identity-based trauma. Jade was created as a method of exploring the important intersections of trauma, culture, gender, race, and ethnicity. The film also highlights the role of institutional racism in the perpetual cycles of trauma. 

This event is supported by the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion (OIDI) and NU Counselling and Psychological Services (CAPS).

Optional surveys will be available post-screening to gather your insights and experiences.

Selected for the 2023 Midwest Film Festival, and nominated for the 2022 Best of the Midwest Awards.
