ReMoved: A Story About Foster Care

ReMoved: A series of short films that captures the transformation a child can go through after experiencing trauma. We see this story in many of the children that come through our doors here are Northwest Trauma Counseling. Our aim is to address the trauma symptoms and restore wholeness to the life of a child that has experienced trauma. 

ReMoved was made with the desire that it would be used to serve in bringing awareness, encourage, and be useful in foster parent training, and raising up foster parents. 

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.

"It would be impossible to fully understand the life and emotions of a child going through the foster care system, but this short narrative film portrays that saga in a poetic light, with brushes of fear, anger, sadness, and a tiny bit of hope." -Santa Barbara Independent
