On November 3rd, the FCC organization of Middle Tennessee will screen our film, “The Invisible Red Thread” at the Bellevue Church of Christ in Nashville.

The non-profit organization, with an aim to serve and support families in all stages of adoption from China, was founded in 2007 and now has around 200 members. Unlike their usual monthly screenings, they’ve decided to gear this event towards an older audience, with parents and children over 13 years old invited to attend.

Organizer Dana Croy told us one of the local FCC families was profiled in the adoption-themed film “Somewhere in Between” and had very positive feedback when screened by the community. With “The Invisible Red Thread” being in the same family of adoption films, she expects the film to be just as well received. next Monday night.

“The Board & myself feel strongly that there are not enough families talking about this stuff. There are many families coming home with their kids, whether it be from China or even from Russia, and they say ‘We’re here now and [the kids] are American or white’. They are not giving enough attention to the questions of identity that these girls and boys need to wrestle with.”

Guests will be watching the film on two 60-inch flat screen TVs suspended on the church walls, and are encouraged to bring dinner or snacks. An open discussion about the film will conclude the evening.

The event is free for members and 5$ at the door for non-members. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for the meet & greet and brown bag dinner on Monday, November 3, 2014 at the Bellevue Church of Christ (Nashville). Movie begins at 6:30PM, followed by discussion.
