Character Day

What are your strengths, and how can you use them more in your work, school, home, or community?

Join ZERO1 on Thursday, March 20th for the global film premiere of  The Science of Character by award-winning filmmaker Tiffany Shlain. The film is the fourth installment in the Let it Ripple: Mobile Films for Global Change series in which Shlain and her team at The Moxie Institute Film Studio + Lab use the collaborative power of the Internet’s “cloud” to engage a global audience in creating short films that inspire action around political, cultural, and social issues. Shlain calls these films “Cloud Films” and has spoken and led workshops on the power of cloud filmmaking at the Sundance Film Festival (2014), the Tribeca Film Festival (2013), and the American Film Showcase in South Africa (2012).

“As a parent and a student of life, I found it very empowering to learn about all the scientific research that confirms that if we focus on the strengths we have, as well as on developing particular strengths we may not have, it has a lasting effect on our happiness and well-being and can ultimately lead to a more a just and caring world,” said Shlain. “By using humor, history, and research, we hope to inspire viewers everywhere to shape who they want to be and play a role in helping other people achieve their maximum potential.”

As part of #CharacterDay, The Science of Character will premiere at over 1500 events held around the world – from ZERO1 to schools throughout the Los Angeles Unified School District to State Department screenings at U.S. embassies in Egypt, South Africa, and other countries.

RSVP and join thousands around the world watching “The Science of Character” on March 20th. Screening + discussion will be held from 6:30pm – 7:30pm at ZERO1 Garage at 439 S. First St. in San Jose.
