Paper Tigers” hinges on a remarkable collaboration between subject and filmmaker. Armed with their own cameras and their own voices, the teens of “Paper Tigers” offer raw but valuable insight into the hearts and minds of teens pushing back against the specter of a hard childhood. Against the harsh reality of truancy, poor grades, emotional pain, and physical violence, answers begin to emerge. The answers do not come easily. Nor can one simply deduce a one-size-fits-all solution to a trauma-informed education. But there is no denying something both subtle and powerful at work between teacher and student alike: the quiet persistence of love in search of clear and honest answers.
