From a press release:

Studio BE will present a free screening of the documentary film “Angst” at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 7 p.m.

In addition to this movie about anxiety and its effects, the evening will feature speaker Dr. Tiffany Griffiths, an in-person reading by Trauma Informed Mind Body (TIMBo) Collective founder Suzanne Jones, and a guided meditation by Studio BE’s Dr. Christine Kiesinger.

Tickets are free and available now at the Sundance Vacations Box Office at the Kirby Center (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre).

“Angst” is an IndieFlix Original documentary designed to raise awareness around anxiety. The 2017 film includes candid interviews with kids, teens, educators, experts, parents, and a special interview with Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps.

“I welcomed the opportunity to be a part of ‘Angst’ to further the dialogue around mental health and to help people understand the impact anxiety has on our mental state and encourage people, especially kids, to ask for help,” Phelps said.

The film’s goal specifically is to help people identify and understand the symptoms of anxiety and encourage them to reach out for help. “Angst” screens in schools, communities, and theaters around the world. The 56-minute movie provides tools, resources and, above all, hope.
