The Society for Research in Human Development will host a film screening of “Reject” at 7:30 p.m. today in the Sunflower/Marigold Room of the Holiday Inn Town Lake, 20 N. I-35. A panel discussion follows. The screening is open to the public and free.

“Reject,” a documentary, looks at the experience of social rejection. With a blend of scientific evidence and personal stories, the film is driven by a core idea — that social rejection has a profound impact on life.

The film aims to raise public awareness about the consequences of rejection in its many forms -– bullying, parental neglect, race discrimination.
