  • LOST KITES
    “I want to see what is the best way to help children without families – what is that?” Asked director, Samuel Rich. And so a group set out on a 22 nation journey for two years, with a lean budget from crowd funding and donations from family and friends. Statistics appeared daunting at the start, 8-10 million children living in orphanages, and 100 million on the streets, but the more the team traveled, the more hope for family began to emerge. 70+ interviews with social workers, advocates, doctors, and authors revealed strategies that the team is now sharing with the world in their film.

  • CHILDREN OF SHANGHAI
    Bear Grylls narrates this documentary about China’s first generation of foster children. Now working in technology, finance, tourism, arts and sports, these young professionals reveal how they moved on from life in orphanages to achieve success and, in a series of touching reunions, their foster parents recall their battles to help them overcome prejudice and serious developmental difficulties. Bear tells the extraordinary story of Robert Glover, who, together with his wife Elizabeth and their six young children, moved from the UK to China in 1998, and founded the charity Care For Children.
