Forget The Past

is a non- traditional documentary, which explores the issues of local and international Indian adoption through the eyes of various children.

More from the website:

The film gives a whole new understanding to adoption. It forces unparalleled recognition to the emotion and commitment that parents often face; as planning parents and as receiving parents. Yet, the brutal reality and all its complexities can be quite confusing to those who are not familiar with the international processes and bylaws. This documentary is crucial to the understanding and wellbeing of soon-to-be-parents and those children waiting to be welcomed home.
