We wanted to share with you a recent film portrait of our home and our residents. It may be viewed on our homepage (link below).
The title of the film is "Out of Sight - Out of Mind." It was written and directed by Chris Kitahara and produced by Brian J. Kremer.
Out of Sight - Out of Mind is a documentary that offers a portrait of the residents of Warm Hearth, Armenia's first group home for orphans with disabilities. With visual poetry as the mechanic of the piece, Kitahara addresses the plight of institutionalization that these residents face and captures the hope of a life-long home in Warm Hearth. The daily lives of the residents are portrayed in a way that honors their dignity, humanity and beauty. This documentary was made possible through Chris Kitahara's generous donation of time and talent, the insightful production of Brian Kremer, a Peace Corps Response volunteer who served at Warm Hearth for six months, and individual donors who provided for Chris' trip to Armenia.
