"Originally created for the 168 Film Festival, ReMoved follows the emotional story through the eyes of a young girl taken from her home and placed into foster care."
Film background info:
Tears streamed down as I watched this. THIS IS WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO.
This is THE BEST depiction of Foster Care that I’ve ever seen on Film. I agree with so many of the video’s comments, this should be used in all Foster Parent trainings. Please Share.
E and I just watched this movie. It was very moving. E had a lot of great insights and I cried. Worth the 12 minutes.
At the 5:30 mark, she brings all her worldly possessions in a black trash bag. She brings it into blank room and sits with it on her empty bunkbed.
When they came a month after Christmas and the week of his birthday and birthday party, they came with one suitcase and three black trash bags. Though 5 and 7, they fit into sizes 4T and 5T.
We looked at one year ago pictures last night. Neither of us slept well. Diva only occasionally sleeps well. Little Man never does.
But, now, they are happy.
reblogging because I wanted to add; the trash bag plays a crucial role in this film. To me it was partially what made it SO TRUE to the real foster care experience. Every child in care that I’ve seen or known (as a former foster care case manager and foster parent) has dragged that god forsaken trash bag full of their only possessions from home to home.
