“Shiny Objects” Documentary
October 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
We will be joined on ZOOM by Film Director and CEO of Silvertwig Entertainment, Gillie Richard, for a viewing of the documentary “Shiny Objects: The Conductor with ADHD” with a question and answer period to follow.
Recently diagnosed with ADHD, a symphony conductor uses the career shutdown of the 2020 pandemic to dive into her mental health. She looks for ways to face the challenges and honour the gifts of being neurodiverse.
This documentary features interviews with Dan Duncan, a highly successful coach, educator and strategist who runs ADHD Inside Out, and has ADHD himself. It also features Irene Spelliscy, a registered psychologist in Alberta and BC whose areas of practice include ADHD assessment and diagnosis in children and adults. It also includes interviews and comments from youth with ADHD and other mental health conditions, as well as interviews with people who work and live with those with ADHD.
