Event description

Description

A loving parent being erased from the life of his or her child is one of the most significant public health crises of our time. In Canada and the US, over 25 million parents are being erased - for no good reason - from their children’s lives after divorce or separation.

The federal election is October 21st. Now is the chance to send a message to our politicians that the family law system is broken in Canada and that reform that puts children first is urgently needed.

Participate in the national screening tour for the ground-breaking new documentary, Erasing Family, and join a mass movement of citizens working to make progressive change happen across Canada. Erasing Family spotlights the devastating consequences of parental alienation. The documentary follows young adults fighting to reunite with their broken families and offers solutions to make divorce healthier for kids.

About the Film

A loving parent being erased is one of the most significant public health crises of our time, with an estimated 3 million parents affected in Canada and 22 million in the US alone. The Erasing Family feature documentary reveals the trauma experienced by children when a loving, fit parent is erased from their lives due to separation and divorce. Through emotionally compelling stories, Director Ginger Gentile provides a road-map for parents and young people caught in families split by high-conflict divorce to reconnect. Family court professionals and legislatures will be moved to improve services for families. The goal of this film is to make separation and divorce healthier for our children.

The film's prequel, Erasing Dad, which explored parental alienation in South America, was originally banned from youtube because it exposed how some professionals make money by keeping fathers and children separated. The ban was overturned, the film became incredibly popular and it helped to improve family law in Argentina.

Told from the point view of the children, Erasing Family attempts to heal from the consequences of courtroom decisions while endeavoring to build a DIY grassroots movement for social change. While the stories told are tragic, we show that happy endings are possible and inspire other children to reunite with their erased families.

The need is urgent. Although over 70% of Canadians support a presumption of equal parenting by mothers and fathers in the event of separation or divorce, and despite research showing that equal parenting has the best outcomes for children, legislative efforts have been repeatedly blocked. Efforts to reform family court by streamlining protocols and offering free or low cost mediation services remain fractured. We are determined to raise awareness that erasing family bonds after divorce or separation is one of the leading cause of preventable childhood trauma and through the film, trigger a mass movement to preserve family bonds.

Filmmaker Ginger Gentile has a strong connection with the "erased families" community. Through her previous work directing Erasing Dad (2014) and creating the PSA Erased Mom (2016), and leading a 21,000+ Facebook page, she has become a leading advocate and in-demand public speaker. Ginger Gentile, has been named an architect of change by Maria Shriver for her work reuniting families and has robust support from family court professionals, advocates and families who desire for divorce and separation to be healthier for our children.

Erasing family bonds after divorce or separation is a leading cause of preventable childhood trauma. For change to happen, non-victims and institutions need to make divorce part of their agenda of social reform. Through personal narratives and legal analysis, Erasing Family educates families on how to make informed choices and mobilize representatives. Audiences will leave knowing that courtroom custody battles and their emotional consequences can be prevented with court reform and laws that promote shared parenting, as well as shifting resources to help families instead of encouraging them to fight.
