Movie Info

Seeds of Resiliency, the new documentary by filmmaker Susan Polis Schutz, helps us to understand that our darkest moments can contain a shining light. It introduces us to twelve diverse people who have survived tragedies and challenges by having great hope and helping others. We meet a young boy who is in the Guinness book of records for performing flips in his wheelchair; a man who escaped war-torn Uganda and now assists other refugees; a Korean professor who recently became a quadriplegic, but does not consider himself unfortunate; and a survivor of the Holocaust who believes that "the worst can bring out the best in us."

Critic Reviews for Seeds of Resiliency

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (5)

Admirably succinct and often affecting, even if it rarely encompasses the full shape, depth and insights of these stories.

November 22, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It must have seemed a good idea at the time: filmed interviews with a dozen good people who have had very, very bad things happen to them.

November 21, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Nothing in the film is new or particularly revelatory, but it brings these individual firsthand stories to the table.

November 20, 2012 | Full Review…

This hour-long documentary is a relentlessly positive look at the transformative power of tragedy, and it works best with very specific stories.

October 25, 2012 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Little more than a strung-together collection of interviews set to piano muzak.
