When It Breaks is an uplifting film about a difficult subject. As the epidemic of teacher burnout grows, this is an inspiring story about education, music, advocacy, and the choices we are all faced with making.
About the film: “When It Breaks” is a year-in-the-life of teacher/musician Konrad Wert as he steps back from his special education classroom in Texas to tour the country with his wife and two children. Performing roots music under his stage name, Possessed by Paul James, he talks with teachers, parents and audiences about the crisis in special education. In the tradition of folksingers such as Woody Guthrie, Konrad realizes that music can be a catalyst for change and uses his live shows to foster deep conversations about special education and the challenges teachers are facing. The film is directed by award-winning filmmaker Todd Tue, who runs Milk Products Media.
The doors open at 11am and film is shown at 12pm followed by a Q&A and discussion with director and film's subject.Show more
