Product Description

In KIDS’ RIGHTS: THE BUSINESS OF ADOPTION, filmmakers Michael Dudko and Olga Rudnieva ask themselves if they are good enough for parenthood and whether they have the right after they personally witness Sir Elton John’s own failed attempt to adopt a child. Their investigation leads them through the Himalayas, the urban slums of Ukraine, China, the United Kingdom, and the United States where they learn about the corruption behind adoption practices and the cyclical problems caused by the welfare system. Through interviews with Dave Pelzer, author of “A Child Called It”, social workers, neuropsychologists, attorneys, parents, soon-to-be parents, victims of child abuse, and Sir Elton John himself, they learn that in today’s global society children in lack of basic human rights and privileges.
