The Graduate School of Education (GSE) will show the film Thirteen this week as part of its inaugural film series.
Thursday, Dec. 8
7 to 10 p.m.
Lincoln Center campus
The film portrays a 13-year-old girl’s deteriorating relationship with her mother as she and her troubled best friend descend into a world of drugs, sex and petty crime. Zsuzsanna Kiraly, Ph.D., clinical associate professor in the school psychology program and director of the Rosa A. Hagin School Consultation and Early Childhood Centers, will facilitate a discussion following the film.
The film series began as an effort to bring together GSE’s various divisions in an educational experience that would appeal to the school’s diverse programs. In May, the biannual series kicked off with Race to Nowhere, a documentary that reveals the dangers of an over-achieving culture.
The showing of Thirteen, the second film in the series, is sponsored by GSE with participation from the Rosa A. Hagin School Consultation and Early Childhood Centers and the Psychological Services Institute, with Fordham Counseling and Psychological Services.
The film is open to students, alumni, faculty and staff. RSVP to Michelle Adams.
