Fading Away

by Alan Minas
Documentary feature film - 80' - HD - Brazil 2009


The film reveals the drama of parents and children who had their bonds broken by a poorly managed marital separation, victims of Parental Alienation. Parents testify to their feelings in the face of the distance of years away from their children. The children, who suffered from this type of abuse in childhood, reveal in a striking way how Parental Alienation interfered in the formation, in the social relationships and, above all, in the relationship with the alienated parent. The film also features law, psychology and social work professionals who discuss the causes, conditions and solutions of the issue.
