Angst Movie Screening & Discussion 

On Thursday, January 16th, there is a special FREE screening of the documentary Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety” at the North Creek High School Theater at 7:00 p.m.  The event will feature a viewing of the  film (presented in English with Spanish subtitles), followed by a moderated discussion. The film is 55 minutes long and appropriate for ages 10 and up.

"Angst" producers, Scilla Andreen and Karin Gornick, have one goal: to start a global conversation and raise awareness around anxiety. Through candid interviews, they utilize the power of film to tell the stories of many kids and teens who discuss their anxiety and its impacts on their lives and relationships, as well as how they’ve found solutions and hope. The film also includes a special interview with Michael Phelps, a mental health advocate and one of the greatest athletes of all-time. In addition, the documentary provides discussions with mental health experts about the causes of anxiety and its sociological effects, along with the help, resources and tools available to address the condition.

Tickets are not required, but they help us plan and guarantee entry. Reserve your ticket at:


This event is co-sponsored by North Creek High School PTSA, Skyview Middle School PTSA and Northshore Council PTSA.
