Film Spotlight

Facial Anomalies: Just Like You

Four children and their best friends tell their real-life stories, explaining what it's like to live with facial paralysis, lymphangioma, and other conditions. Like the book and movie Wonder, the stars of the film show courage as they earn empathy and understanding; they are not defined or limited by their conditions. Instead, they are "just like you." This important and timely title calls upon our communities, our kids, and the world to learn, understand, and accept those living with facial anomalies.
