The first project of the IndieFlix Foundation is to subsidize screenings of Finding Kind in schools, community centers and other organizations throughout the United States.
Finding Kind documents the cross-country journey of two friends and filmmakers, Lauren Parsekian and Molly Stroud, who were both teenage victims of girl-against-girl bullying. During their 10,000 mile journey, Parsekian and Stroud spoke with over 30,000 girls and visited more than 60 cities where they set up "Truth Booths" to capture the memories and confessions of girls across the nation. During these interviews, the filmmakers found that among all of the unique stories, there are universal truths about navigating girlhood and the devastating impact bullying can have. Finding Kind also includes interviews with experts in the fields of psychology and education to explore how society has glamorized, mocked and even accepted the "mean girl" phenomenon. The impact of the message of Finding Kind has been extended through the Kind Campaign, a movement started by the filmmakers, based on the belief that kindness can bring awareness and healing to the lasting consequences of bullying in "girl world."
