Living on the Fault Line: Where Race and Family Meet


A7068 This documentary film explores the intersection of familial love and racial injustice in the experience of transracial families created through adoption. An unflinching look at race in America, it is an intimate portrait that reveals the difficulties transracial families face as children of color grow up in communities where racism and white privilege are unspoken and undeniable realities. Shot in a naturalistic style, Living on the Fault Line profiles nine families telling the untold story of transracial adoption, revealing the complex, challenging and emotional costs of racial discrimination brought into the privacy of the family. Inherent in the film’s content is an examination of racial identity development, of the habituated misconceptions of “race” and of the damaging effects of white privelege.
