Far From The Tree Trailer

FAR FROM THE TREE follows families meeting extraordinary challenges through love, empathy, and understanding. This life-affirming documentary encourages us to cherish loved ones for all they are, not who they might have been. Based on Andrew Solomon’s award-winning, critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling non-fiction book “Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity.”

Emily and Jason Kingsley, longtime friends and supporters of The Arc Westchester, are one of the families highlighted in the film. Emily shares her story of raising a child with Down syndrome. They appeared on The Today Show with Megan Kelly and spoke about their journey. The documentary will hit theaters on July 20 in New York City. Stay posted for plans to view the film locally at The Jacob Burns Theater in Pleasantville.

Congratulations to the Kingsley family! Below are links to the segment on The Today Show that aired on July 17.
