Bus tour and film promoting international adoption visits Indianapolis on April 27

“STUCK,” a 2012 Heartland Film Festival award-winning documentary on the challenges of international adoption, is on tour and will be shown at the AMC Castleton 14 theater at the Castleton Mall at 7 p.m. on April 27.

The film, produced by the non-profit agency Both Ends Burning, tells the stories of four children and three couples navigating a rollercoaster of bureaucracy on their journeys through the international adoption system, each filled with hope, elation and, sometimes, heartbreak.

The “STUCK” bus tour will stop in 60 cities over 78 days. It seeks to promote and elevate awareness of international adoptions and policy.

The event includes live commentary by “STUCK” tour founder, adoptive parent and advocate Craig Juntunen, and nationally recognized international adoption attorney Kelly Ensslin.

There will also be an opportunity to sign a national petition seeking to reform international adoption policy of the staggering costs and bureaucracy that prevent children from joining loving families.

Tickets for the film are $15.

To purchase tickets, sign the online petition, or for more information, log on to www.bothendsburning.org.
