I am Kate S. Logan, the director of the documentary "Kidnapped For Christ," about teens who are taken against their wills to a Christian reform school in the Dominican Republic. AMA.
NEW THREAD FOR DAVID'S AMA - http://redd.it/2awdh4
When I was a young missionary, I heard about Escuela Caribe, a small Christian boarding school that billed itself as a rehabilitation center for troubled teens. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to make a difference. I was hoping to document the positive effects a place like this could have on struggling youth, so I was allowed to stay and film on campus in the Dominican Republic for a summer. Once there, though, I discovered the shocking truth of what was really going on at this remote reform school. I heard stories of kids being taken by force in the middle of the night, rumors of physical abuse, and witnessed staff imposing arbitrary and degrading punishments on the young students. This led me to make my film, Kidnapped for Christ.
David is the main subject of the film and will also be answering questions.
The film has been airing on SHOWTIME and you can check out the trailer at http://www.kidnappedforchrist.com/
