Inspiring Family Documentary
This is a great documentary following an Indian archer and her journey from poverty to the olympics. Short enough for kids with smaller attention spans, this 40 min documentary inspires all who watch it to follow their dreams. Positive themes, positive role models, and Learning from your mistakes are all included in this film. The few things that made me rate it ten and up instead of for all kids is a bit of violence, and depression. At one point a man talks about how he used to beat his sister for working outside,with a smile on his face. The actual violence is not shown, but it might be shocking for some kids. Also, after a loss in a major competition, the protagonist falls into depression. Both of these situations could spark deep conversations for teens, tweens, and mature younger kids, but more sensitive youth might be scared. Overall this is a great documentary introducing overcoming sexism and never giving up to kids. Definitely worth anyone's time! Spectacular watch!
