Put it on your calendar: Tough Love, which had its World Premiere at the 2014 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, returns to Durham for a free Third Friday screening as part of the Full Frame Road Show presented by PNC.

Friday, July 18, 7:30 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.)
Full Frame Theater, Power Plant building
American Tobacco Campus
320 Blackwell St., Durham, North Carolina

Following the stories of Hannah, in New York City, and Patrick, in Seattle, director Stephanie Wang-Breal uses vérité footage, intimate access to sessions at family treatment court, and interviews with foster parents and case workers to convey the tangle of bureaucracy and economic realities that make it so difficult for parents—however reformed and determined—to get their kids back home. 

View the trailer on the Tough Love website.
