DePaul University invites you to join us for an afternoon of film viewing and discussion about this real and relevant topic.In the words of filmmaker Narcel Reedus, “The stories in 'Not Home' will unfold with a mixture of interviews and vérité footage including homecomings, doctors visits, circle of support meetings, and travels with a parent on a visit to a pediatric long-term care facility. With these stories we hope to reveal incredible threads of commonality that cross community, race, and class."The documentary also provides a condensed creative glimpse into the history of institutionalization in the U.S. Footage for the documentary spans over many different states, as it reveals a universal connection between the families' stories.The film offers a glimpse into the lives of several families to give viewers a platform for understanding a parent’s decision to institutionalize a child, as well as an exploration of the health care policies that pay for it.After the screening, we will have a panel discussion and audience Q & A with the filmmaker, a family member, and a range of advocates and experts.A reception will follow for more informal conversation and reflection.
