A Small Good Thing is exactly the type of film we need to slow down and watch to be inspired to slow down even more and talk about what really matters. As part of Middlebury's mindfulness initiative, many departments on campus came together to screen this film. Our panel discussion was thought provoking and continued the next day in the classroom. More so than ever, college institutions need to be teaching students how to connect to place, one’s self and community. In a time where students are struggling and hurting more than ever, A Small Good Thing gives us hope!
