US epidemic to be exposed in film

     (PNAN-CALIF) – Born in Oak Park, Illinois, Canadian author, Carol Ann Shields (1935-2003), who is best known for her 1993 novel, “The Stone Diaries,” which won the U.S. Pulitzer Prize for Fiction as well as the Governor General’s Award in Canada once said: “A childhood is what anyone wants to remember of it.  It leaves behind no fossils, except perhaps in fiction,” however there is a company, Adhara Properties that is going to raise the curtains by exposing the human hush behind them.

    In mid-February, Adhara will begin the production phrase of a featured film that focuses on the unforgettable memories in childhood. The title needs little explanation; in fact, it is a dead ringer: “Abused in America.”

     It has been reported that for 2007, over 3 million singular cases of child abuse were recorded in the US, but this figure climbed to nearly 5.8 million because of the other children associated to the case, and at a whopping $104 billion annual cost. It has also been noted, every ten seconds a child abuse report is made and shockingly and sourced to other general statistics from “Almost five children die every day as a result of child abuse. More than three out of four are under the age of 4.”

    When it comes to statistics, those related to type of abuse or neglect, the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS) reported for 2008 an estimation of “1,740 child fatalities.” For more in depth on this increasing American epidemic, see the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website:

     In addition to Adhara’s role as the production company, who produces mainly socially conscious feature films, according to its CEO Daria Trifu, “We are donating 10% of the profit of Abused in America to the Optimist Youth Homes & Family Services in Pasadena, California.”

     Other related reports issued by Adhara, and one that deals with a private placement memorandum for investors, in the Executive Summary it reads in the most part: “(Abused in America) was supposed to be filmed on two continents; part of it in the United States while the other in Romania. Additionally, the initial budget of the film was $12M. The producers (Adhara) made two choices that brought many benefits to the production and to the investors as well as they reduced the budget to $3.4M.” There is a minimum investment of $25k and the “projected (return on investment) ROI is +400%.”

     The report went on to read in most part:  “Kodak Laboratories in Bucharest… have created the top digital station in the world.” In addition, Kodak has given the film “45% discount on all production and post-production costs.”

     What we see in person may appear to be a “Leave It to Beaver” television episode with Ward and June Cleaver, but what lurks behind closed doors could leave one shaking in their footprints.

     Granted what appears to shine with halos of an ‘all American family’ – is the fiction author Shields spoke of, but those fossils that come from child abuse have only been forced-deep. Their roots must be treated; they must become dearly parted from the human make-up, or the wheel of abuse will stay on its deadly path.
