Directed by John Korty | 1977
“…the most affirmative, inspirational document ever put on film.”
—The Washington Post

This Oscar-winning documentary profiles a California couple with 14 adopted children, many of whom are disabled or war orphans from Vietnam. Shot by Jon Else and a crew who who lived with the DeBolt family for over two years, this hugely compassionate portrait of a unique family reflects Korty’s big-hearted worldview. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
