Documentary highlights troubled foster care system



A Florida guardian ad litem's documentary about problems in the state's foster care system will premiere this month at the Palm Beach International Film Festival.

Foster Shock director Mari Frankel describes it as a look at Florida's foster care system through the eyes of children. It also appears to be a political call to action opposing the privatization of the system.

And it includes Miami Herald reporter Carol Marbin Miller, whose reporting has shone a light on neglect and abuse in child welfare agencies in the state.
