ABOUT THE FILM

Oscar®-winning filmmakers Deborah Oppenheimer and Mark Jonathan Harris (Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport) reunite to go beyond the sensational headlines and stereotypes to upend some of the most enduring myths about foster care and those involved in the system. Interweaving gripping personal stories of children and youth, parents and foster parents, with deep insights from social workers, advocates, judges, and others, FOSTER traces a complex path through an often misunderstood world.

There are currently more than 400,000 children in foster care in the United States, and that number continues to grow each year. The film offers a real but hopeful perspective on a community that needs society’s support.
