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."

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

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.

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

Village Voice
Top Critic

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

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