Shame: Hope and Healing
In The Church Workshop
This documentary is a clear-eyed examination of modern pornography and it's effects on kids, teens, parents & porn stars. The goal of the "Over 18" project is to educate youth on the realities of pornography, help their parents understand the growing epidemic of porn usage, and propose solutions for preventing exposure and addiction in the first place.
The documentary tackles an issue that many people would rather ignore; the effects of pornography on children and youth. The documentary follows the true story of a boy who became addicted to pornography at the age of nine while playing on his computer in his family’s living room. The film has several interviews with experts from around the world as well as people who are still active in the porn industry today.
The airing of the documentary will include a panel of various community professionals which will facilitate and provide opportunity for audience questions and responses.
