About the Film

“Seeds of Resiliency,” helps us to understand that our darkest moments can contain a shining light. The film introduces us to twelve diverse people who have survived tragedies and overcome challenges, including Ugandan refugees, a former homeless man and alcoholic, the Founder of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, three  survivors from the Holocaust, and an eight-year survivor of Stage IV Lung Cancer.  But today they are leading happy productive lives.  In the filmmaker’s unique style, these uplifting portraits are told without the intrusion of a narrator. You will feel as if you are sitting in the same room with these people as they inspire and teach you to draw out the resilience within yourself and to have the sure knowledge that the curve balls of life don’t have to keep us down.
