Director Statement

"Home" is a film that highlights the struggle of adopted children. It is an artistic representation inspired by the story of Tamara Isaak-Harrington, a young woman born in Russia and raised in the United States. In "Home", I wanted to explore the deepest emotions surrounding Tamara as a representation of adopted children struggling with questions pertaining to their origin story. No matter how happy a child is with their adoptive family today, or how young they were when placed in a foster home, being adopted is an important part of an individual's identity. Those who were adopted might never know their birth parents, the circumstances around their adoption or even their real birth date. For them, part of piecing together a strong identity may be discovered in learning to live without knowing important truths about themselves.
