Many are touched by adoption, and Kaitlin knows her story is not unique. However, having the once-in-a-lifetime ability to create a documentary about her beginnings and the meetings with her biological family is a memory she will be able to treasure forever.
To all those who made this documentary a possibility, thank you. Your time, your knowledge, your experience, and your financial help are more appreciated than you know.
And continue to keep your fingers crossed - you could see it at a film festival near you! It has now been to Minnesota, California, and Texas festivals...even Canada!
Meet The Team
A Chicagoland native, Kelsey earned her BA in Digital Cinema and Interactive and Social Media from DePaul University and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in creator acquisition and strategic management at a multi-channel network. She continues to partner with the DePaul community from the west coast and is excited to be a part of this project.
When Kaitlin approached Kelsey with this inspiring story, she knew that she had to be a part of it. She cannot wait to share this amazing project with others.
Kaitlin graduated from Marquette University with her B.A. in Communications, concentrating on Broadcast and Electronic Communication, and a minor in Film Studies. Following undergrad, she continued her education at DePaul University. This passion project is Kaitlin's thesis documentary. Upon completion, she obtained her MFA in Cinema Directing.
Film production is something she has certainly fallen in love with; having the ability to work with such creative minds at Marquette, DePaul, and elsewhere has been a fantastic experience. She looks forward to the future and can't wait to see what it has in store for her...as long as she can keep filming!
Kaitlin is so thankful to every person who has made this crazy dream of a film a reality.
Alma Pichardo Lluberes
Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, Alma moved to Chicago in 2013 to pursue a bachelor’s degree in film production at DePaul University. With a little less than a year left until her graduation as an undergraduate student, she is currently working as a producer for several independent student films. Not leaving behind her culture, views, and discipline from the D.R., ever since moving to Chicago, Alma has tried to merge the world she grew up in with the new experiences that DePaul and the city have brought on for her.
After graduation, she hopes to continue her career as a film producer either in the States or back home. Alma is so glad she got to be a part of this incredible project and thanks all of those who so kindly helped make this happen.
