Fahrenheit Film’s next project is a full-length feature documentary entitled Dodging Bullets, an exploration of Historical Trauma. With Dodging Bullets, we’re doing more than educating people about the idea of Historical Trauma. We’re documenting the relationship between historical trauma and learned helplessness among indigenous North American youth and investigating current efforts to drive positive behavior change, particularly in the areas of substance abuse, suicide and diabetes.
This is a deeply human story, woven together with educational information. It’s part science, part sociological study, part political commentary. But at the heart of the matter it’s a story about people, survivorship and hope.
Telling stories that must be told.
