We screened a feature documentary called You Have His Eyes. We can’t recommend this film enough. Folks walked out teary eyed and choked up. If you have a chance to see this film, don’t miss the opportunity!-Heidi Durrow, Festival Founder

The story opens with a captivating personal confession from estranged birth mother to son. Heart warming as much as it is shocking, Neomi’s account of her son’s adoption is an empowering story about perseverance, sacrifice, resilience and above all love. “[Director Christopher] Wilson has used his skills to reveal a haunting story of love, mystery, and pain. By the time you reach the end of his escapade, your emotions are highly charged, filled with anticipation and hope. Wilson does not disappoint.” (Emmy award winning journalist JC Hayward).
