A must see for kids
2 January 2016 | by advlandvideoSee all my reviews

Domestic violence, bullying and racism are very serious issues. Cries Unheard from Dreams Come True Films takes a raw, heavy handed and unflinching approach to all 3 in under 30 minutes. Sounds impossible yet Candy J Beard makes it look so simple. Couple this with the short attention span of children and you have what I consider a must see for kids. The synopsis she gives this barely scratches the surface. Every parent, teacher or even coach at some point struggles at finding the time or place for those all important discussions. This is sure to do just that. Beyond a teaching tool, this short film is also an emotional roller coaster that is truly moving, thought provoking and frightening for both kids and adults.
