STUCK Documentary Screens in Spokane | Arts & Culture
International adoption is known for being an arduous process for many parents and children hoping to become a family. The Both Ends Burning organization has created a documentary and is taking it on tour to bring awareness the problems facing international adoption. On Friday night the group stops in Spokane as part of their STUCK Tour.
STUCK is a documentary that follows three children from Ethiopia, Vietnam and Haiti as three couples from the U.S. work to adopt them. It was the winner of the Audience Choice Award at the 2012 Heartland Film Festival. According to Both Ends Burning the average international adoption takes 3-5 years and that the number of these adoptions has declined 60 percent since 2004. They hope that the STUCK documentary and tour will create a catalyst for change in the international adoption system.
You can view STUCK this Friday at the Riverpark Square AMC theater at 7 p.m. If you are unable to make it to the screening you can stream the film online or purchase a DVD on the Both Ends Burning Website.
