Screening of “Not Home” A Documentary About Kids Living In Nursing Facilities

Presented by Narcel Reedus, Director
Can you imagine how a child feels growing up in a nursing home? Celebrating Christmas, birthdays and other milestones alongside elderly bedridden patients is the mainstay for thousands of children with a developmental disability throughout America. Award-winning filmmaker, Narcel Reedus, reveals the stories of children growing up without a childhood in the heart-felt documentary, “Not Home.” Abilities Expo is pleased to screen a portion of this 99-minute film that examines the complex national phenomenon of children living in nursing homes and state-run institutions. Often times parents of medically-fragile children feel forced to make the decision to institutionalize their child because some states disproportionately allocate funding for brick and mortar institutions rather than the less expensive home and community based living. Time for questions and answers will be available following the session. Learn more at www.nothomedocumentary.com. A limited number of DVD’s will be available for purchase following the screening.

Not Home Documentary Screens UC Berkeley

Narcel Reedus’s documentary “Not at Home” will be shown on Tuesday March 19, 5pm, with a talk by the filmmaker, at UC Berkeley, 300 Wheeler Hall (Media Room).

The documentary follows four people, two young people and two parents, exploring how parents of medically-fragile children (especially but not exclusively in poor families, many of them families of color) feel forced to make the decision to institutionalize their child because some states disproportionately allocate funding for brick and mortar institutions rather than the less expensive home and community based living. Sponsored by UCB’s Disability Studies Research Cluster, Diversity and Health Disparities Research Cluster, and Dean Christopher Edley, Berkeley Law School. Wheelchair accessible.
