It's with immense joy for us to present a different kind of Honesty Circle, with the first ever Singapore screening of the independent film "Teach Me to Be WILD: A Story of Hurt Children & their Animal Healers."

The feature length (59 mins) documentary will be followed by a message from the filmmakers, Rajesh Krishnan and Anne Veh, with other special guests who had visited the wildlife sanctuary in California, ending with small circles of sharing.  

Everyone is welcome. There is no charge for admission, this event is offered in the spirit of the gift. :)

Film Synopsis

Teach Me to Be WILD explores the work of a sanctuary in Northern California, where a team of injured, non-releasable wild animals become Wild-Teachers and are helping heal generations of hurt children (at-risk teens, justice-involved youth, foster kids and others). The traumatic histories of the creatures, who range from an Andean condor to a two-toed sloth, often parallel those of the at-risk chidlren who visit. Unexpected and empathic connections are forged that ripple into stories of transformation. 

Founded by Steve Karlin, a former park ranger and television personality whose greatest mentors were a 330-pound American black bear and a pair of robins, Wildlife Associates aims to recall us to our true place in Nature's web. Filmed over a period of three years with intimate access to the animals, their caregivers, workshop facilitators and their spirited students, Teach Me to Be WILD captures the magic that transpires where wounded children and their Wild Teachers meet.

This event is part of A Good Space, Where Good People and Ideas Meet. An initiative of NVPC.
