First Circle is an intimate and personal film about children entering foster care when their families can no longer care for them; often as the consequence of addiction. The film follows families who struggle to heal, as well as the police, administrators, and volunteers who work for change. A discussion with director Heather Rae and two of the film’s subjects will follow the screening. (2010, Dir. Heather Rae, 72 min.)
