On Sunday, award-winning documentary “STUCK” about the international adoption process and those who get “stuck” within it, will roll into Omaha for a special one night only screening at the AMC Oak View 24, 3555 S 140th Plaza.
The movie was born from a desire to increase awareness about the plight of more than 10 million children, sentenced to live in orphanages while laws initially designed to protect them in fact keep them from adopted families. The national tour kicked off in Washington D.C. on Feb. 28 and will premiere in sequence as the tour rolls across the country on the “Stuck” logo wrapped tour bus, visiting 60 cities in 80 days and traveling over 17,000 miles.
Following the 7 p.m. Omaha screening, Executive Producer Craig Juntunen will host an asked-and-answered session. Juntunen is also President and Founder of Both Ends Burning, the non-profit organization dedicated to furthering international adoption. Craig currently lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with his wife Kathi and their three adoptive children, Amelec, Espie and Quinn.
