"Home from School" at the Chagrin Documentary Film Festival

The 12th Annual Chagrin Documentary Film Festival is showing "Home from School: The Children of Carlisle". This film takes a compelling look into the troubled history Indian Boarding Schools from the 1880s, which used brutal tactics of assimilation on young indigenous children who had been forcebly removed from their families, communities and cultures. In the decades that followed, it was discovered that a shocking amount of these children never returned home. This powerful film documents the incredible spirit of the Northern Arapaho Tribe who, after decades of red tape and generational trauma, finally bring the children that died at these horrible schools home.

This year, CDFF will be a hybrid of in-person and online streaming, with plenty of special events in between! The festival will include the CDFF On Demand Streaming platform, films in the park, and a new brand addition, “Live On Main”, which will include an array of special events and recorded panels at Chagrin’s Township Hall.

"Home from School" is scheduled to air online only, October 5th through 15th. TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW!

Running time: 60 minutes (USA)
