Our latest project for SFCASA is a short film featuring a former foster youth who tells his story through dance.
Entering the foster care system is a moment that forever alters the course of a child’s life. They’re forced to grapple with a spectrum of experience and emotions that would be hard enough for an adult to face—which is why it’s so important for them to have an advocate at their side. Our latest project for SFCASA is a short film featuring a former foster youth who didn’t have that kind of consistent support. As a dancer, he has found movement to be a singularly powerful way for him to process and share his story, one that is difficult—but important—to hear.
The film, Moving Through, was created with dancer Kardale Holland and visionary director/cinematographer/composer LAKE Ѫ, in a collaboration marked by genuine connection and serendipity. It offers an unflinching view into one story in the hopes that viewers will be motivated to help SFCASA in their mission of giving all foster children the opportunity to thrive.
