Listed as one of Indiewire’s 10 Hottest Docs to watch, My Name is Faith is the powerful story of a 13-year-old girl working to overcome a troubling past and accept and embrace the love that now surrounds her. Born as Brianna to a drug-addicted mother, she and her baby brother lived in harrowing conditions before being adopted by co-director Tiffany Sudela-Junker and her husband, a couple fully invested in raising their children to be whole, happy, and strong.
Winner of Slamdance’s Feature Documentary Audience Award, the film is a moving look at one brave girl’s struggle to find her place in the world and a place in the structure of her new adoptive family. Although suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder and reactive attachment disorder, Faith’s attempt to heal from her traumatic past is engaging, enlightening, and filled with hope.
