Documentary Showing: Wrestling Ghosts

YVC’s Diversity Series presents a film showing of Ana Joanes documentary Wrestling Ghosts. The showing will be held on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 6:00pm in the Deccio Higher Education Center, Building #8, Parker Room. It is free and open to the public.

Wrestling Ghosts is a raw and heart-opening documentary about parenting, childhood trauma, and healing. The story follows the epic inner journey of Kim a young mother, who, over two heart-breaking and inspiring years, battles the traumas from her past in order to create a new present and future for her and her family. In this intimate portrait, Kim shares deeply personal moments that most of us keep secret with shame, and invites us into her counseling sessions. With her counselor’s help, Kim opens up to new ways of thinking and uncovers what has blocked her from experiencing the joy and connection she most desires. She learns about the impact of childhood trauma on her brain, and how, tragically, this very damage causes the trauma to be passed on to her own children. Armed with knowledge and compassion, she pursues new strategies to heal herself.
