On December 19, the Documentary Film Center in the Moscow Museum saw the premiere of the new documentary series "Change One Life", by Katerina Gordeeva. It discusses the subject of family structure of orphans and various aspects of adoptive parenthood.

The first of these series "Love", "Change One Life" and "A Man Out of Nowhere" can be viewed on the Russian social network "Odnoklassniki", with the support of the charity fund "Change One Life".

Katerina Gordeeva is a well-known journalist, public figure, and an adoptive mother, who raises issues such as the return of children to the family, the secrets of adoption and tries to answer them together with the best Russian experts on family structure and foster parenting. She enters the institutions, the homes and the hearts for the public to see what people do not normally show to outsiders.

"A Man Out of Nowhere", the third documentary from the series, was released in January 2018 and is available on social networks world wide. It focuses on tabooed problems related to adoptive parenthood and social orphanhood in Russia, in a manner never previously seen on the screens. In a very simple and natural but at the same time profound manner, it portrays the journey of a young New Zealand who briefly leaves his foster family and visits Russia, in search of his birth parents, information and closure.

“We are trying to understand the parents’ state of mind, reasons and circumstances, we are trying to find out and discuss the reasons for the return of the children, and in the end, we are trying to understand what is love,” said Katerina Gordeeva, the director of the documentary series.
