Millions of children are systematically converted into hostages by the family court system
after their parents separate. Years can pass before children can see
parents, siblings, and extended family. These lost family bonds create
irreparable harm and rob children of their identities. It is one of the
largest public health crises in modern times, but it does not receive attention because it is considered a normal part of divorce.
these kids were manipulated and lied to, being told that their mom or
dad did not want them, or was unfit to care for them. As they become
“aware”, and recognize the forces that caused them to suffer by erasing a
loving parent, they will untangle the web of family court corruption, outdated ideologies and government subsidies that prolong family conflict.
The arch of our young protagonists as they move from denial to discovery, from alienation to reunification,
will be intercut with interviews with celebrities and short
testimonials from alienated children the world over to show that this is
a global problem.
Documentary films are powerful tools that shift public opinion, and Erasing Family aims to move people to take action with a powerful impact campaign that will include screenings at universities, high schools being available for streaming after a broadcast premier. We will help advocates pass more shared parenting and reform bills by getting a digital copy to every family court judge, lawyer and professional, as well as politicians.
"Strong stuff. Good stuff. This is exactly the professional grade documentary that needs to get made. They need funding. They need our support. I strongly urge you to contribute – I did.
This documentary will be your voice, this documentary will be the
authentic voice of your beloved children speaking clearly about their
experience of alienation and recovery." Dr Craig Childress.
