May 1, 2012 - PRLog -- Charlotte, NC – May 1, 2012 – A new documentary "Not Home" filmed by independent filmmaker Narcel Reedus, will screen in multiple cities starting in June. The documentary explores the intricacy of children with developmental disabilities living in nursing facilities and state run institutions. It will include interviews from parents, advocates, activists, and elected officials. The documentary also provides a condensed creative glimpse into the history of institutionalization in the U.S. Footage for the documentary spans over many different states, as it reveals a universal connection between the families' stories.

“The stories in Not Home will unfold with a mixture of interviews and vérité footage including homecomings, doctors visits, circle of support meetings, and travels with a parent on a visit to a pediatric long-term care facility. With these stories we hope to reveal incredible threads of commonality that cross community, race, and class.” says filmmaker Narcel Reedus. This documentary will provide a glimpse into the lives of several families to give viewers a platform for understanding a parent’s decision to institutionalize a child. It will also explore the health care policies that pay for it. The documentary deals with a real and relevant topic that seeks to engage audiences and prompt community dialogue.

In addition to the screenings, the Not Home Documentary will be available on DVD as well as book format. Learn more about the new independent documentary, Not Home, at the movie’s website at Follow the documentary's updates on Twitter at!/NotHomeDoc.
