Which Way Home

This is a very shocking documentary to say the least. I'm not a very emotional girl, but some scenes made me cringe and shed a few tears. Despite attempts to make the fates of the filmed children seem positive during the final scenes, you won't help but wonder what unimaginable nightmares other children experience while making this nightmarish journey. And although you will feel depressed after watching this movie, I hope you will also feel gratitude for everything you have in life. There are kids who yearn for the basics and risk their lives to get them: a home, food,and someone who loves them. We must count our blessings and cherish them.

In 2003, Rebecca Cammisa founded Documentress Films, teamed up with Mr. Mudd Productions, and began developing the 2010 OSCAR®-nominated documentary, “Which Way Home,” for which she received a 2006 Fulbright Fellowship for Filmmaking. // “Which Way Home” aired on HBO and was nominated for a 2010 Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary, and four EMMY nominations. The film also received a 2010 Imagen Award for Best Documentary on Television. // Ms. Cammisa co-directed, co-produced, and shot the feature documentary film, "Sister Helen," which aired on HBO, and won the Sundance Film Festival's 2002 Documentary Directing Award, was nominated for both a 2004 EMMY Award for Outstanding Cultural and Artistic Programming, and an Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary Film Award by the Directors Guild of America. Rebecca has worked on various films and television series for IFC, A&E Films, and the History Channel. // In 2010, Rebecca was honored with a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship for Filmmaking, and the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards’ Grand Prize.
