Masten shares expertise on children's resilience in 'Ida's Story'
Ida's Story, a documentary about a remarkable family, Ida Sokoloff and her six siblings, who survived the Cossack invasion of the Ukraine in 1918 and spent two years on their own, will be shown at the Walker Art Center as part of Women with Vision 2010 film series. The film aims to explore the issue of how genocide happens and how we can make a difference by exploring the issue through the story of the Sokoloff children. The story is told by Ida, who was 8 at the time of the invasion and in her 90s when she was filmed. Among the experts included in the documentary to discuss the children's adaptation and survival is Ann Masten, professor in the Institute of Child Development, who participated in the filming as an expert on resilience.
Screening is Saturday, March 20, at 1:30 pm, and ticket information is available on the Walker website.
