Infobase is pleased to announce that Facial Anomalies, a new title from Just Like You Films, was just added to Classroom Video On Demand—a perfect complement to one of 2017’s most anticipated movies, Wonder. (In fact, Facial Anomalies is being shown in conjunction with private screenings of Wonder at select AMC Theatres.) In Facial Anomalies: Just Like You, three boys and a girl are joined by their best friends. They tell their real-life stories, explaining what it’s like to live with facial paralysis, lymphangioma, and other conditions. Like the book and movie Wonder, the stars of the film show courage as they earn empathy and understanding.
Facial Anomalies: Just Like You calls upon our communities, our kids, and the world to learn, understand, and accept those living with facial anomalies. The kids, award-winning journalist Hannah Storm, and internationally renowned surgeons—Operation Smile founder Dr. Bill Magee, Dr. Teresa O, and Dr. Milton Waner—explain the conditions, treatments, and model of how to be a good friend to someone living with a facial anomaly. Facial Anomalies: Just Like You shares the perspective of courageous children living with facial anomalies who are not defined or limited by their conditions. Instead, they are “just like you.”
Other titles in the Just Like You Films series on the Classroom Video On Demand platform include Down Syndrome: Just Like You, Cancer as Told by Three Children: Just Like You, Burns as Told by Three Children: Just Like You, and I Care for a Child Burn Survivor: Just Like You. Infobase is proud to carry this important content and to give Classroom Video On Demand subscribers convenient, streaming access to these films.
