This broadcast’s guest is Yasmin Mistry, an award-winning film producer and director who founded Foster Care Film, a company that produces documentaries on youth involved in foster care. In this interview we discuss Yasmin’s third film, “Family Rewritten”, about a young woman, Camilla, who came into foster care at 17. The discussion was around the issues for a youth this age coming into the foster care system for the first time and the creative way a permanent home was found for her.
