Seeking Child Abuse Survivors | Pacific Palisades

Kazia Productions, a Santa Monica-based media production company, is working with a Palisadian Emmy Award-winning cinematographer to find collaborators and survivor stories to be featured in a feature-length documentary, “Child Not Released.”

“The film will explore long-term consequences of child abuse and neglect by examining diverse survivor stories,” Writer/director/producer Rita Ciolek shared with the Palisadian-Post. “The emphasis is on the effects of trauma on early childhood brain development including addictions, depression, suicidality, and other physical and mental health issues that develop later in life as a result of such trauma. The film will also offer innovative approaches to healing, cutting-edge treatments and experimental programs to help survivors re-wire their brains and overcome trauma.”
