our latest documentary film
(Note: the above is merely a promotional video; the full version of Rise — buyable below — is much longer.)
Profound giftedness is a way of experiencing, perceiving, thinking, and creating that is fundamentally different from a more typical human experience. Our new hour‐long documentary film, Rise: The Extraordinary Journey of the Exceptionally and Profoundly Gifted, is a look into the lives of twelve exceptionally and profoundly gifted children, teenagers, and young adults, fleshed out by stirring testimony from parents, teachers, and school administrators.
Watching Rise was life changing for my 12 year old. She had tears rolling down her cheeks during the film. On the way back to our room I asked her about it. She said she thought she would always feel alone. She didn't think anyone else was like her except her siblings. She is still deeply touched by the film and talks about it. I am a physician and I have seen many kids misdiagnosed with mental health diagnosis when giftedness was the issue.
Rise is a valuable contribution towards improving awareness about our exceptionally and profoundly gifted children.
I just finished watching this. I am speechless. The stories are diverse and yet the soul of each story sings the same haunting tune. Hope and pain and healing emanate through the cast of real living beautifully gifted humans. Thank you for this important documentary.
I just saw the documentary Rise: The Extraordinary Journey of the Exceptionally and Profoundly Gifted. Loved it!
Congratulations on a phenomenal documentary. Even when it was over I wanted to keep seeing those in it. I think this should be required viewing by all teachers present and upcoming and of course the public at large.
