Shani Heckman is a brilliant storyteller and a candid, insightful presenter. Her film, “America’s Most Unwanted,” gives voice to LGBTQ foster youth in California who have experienced injustice because of how they look and who they love. The town hall screenings that Shani hosts, in collaboration with other former foster youth, are engaging and informative. Not only do Shani and her co-presenters share aspects of their own stories with candor and humor, but they also offer powerful ideas about how to improve the dependency system to better serve all of our children and youth in care. I would highly recommend Shani’s film and town hall presentation to any youth-serving organization.”

  1. Hi, I am a foster parent to 2 wonderful sons. I tried to purchase it for 3.00 and it keeps charging me 29, can you help?

    • Hi Heidi,
      Thanks for reaching out and your work as a foster mother! They sound like 2 lucky boys.

      Sadly, due to production costs we’re unable to provide free DVDs. At cost, w/out any profit, they are $25. As a former foster youth myself, who self funded the film–I had hoped to find financial support to provide free DVDs but we already spent the small funding we received.

      We hope to launch an affordable and accessible digital screener in the next few weeks. We will have to charge something for it, however, b/c we’ve 6 years of production debt–but the online screener will be more affordable.

      thanks for your interest and support,
      shani heckman
      film director & former foster
