This film and pre-recorded panel discussion explore the shattering impact of forcible separation of a child from a parent through parental kidnapping. This not only affects the child, but also negatively impacts the family as a whole, including the kidnapper. This program will explore this issue through the film “Sarah Cecilie”, produced and directed by LMU Professor Glenn Gebhard, and executive produced by Baroness Catherine Meyer.
