    Documentary Film Makers Seeking High School Students for Documentary about Foreign Service TCKs

    Ramona Diaz and her producing partner Capella Fahoome are in the very nascent stages of developing a major documentary film and/or series about third culture kids (TCKs), concentrating on Foreign Service youth.  To this end, they would like to locate and communicate with high school teens (and your parents, of course) who are either returning to the United States to attend high school in America for the very first time, or who are preparing to depart their current post and transition to another post overseas.

    Ramona Diaz and Capella Fahoome are both nationally recognized filmmakers who have had films screened at top-tier international film festivals and broadcast nationwide and abroad.  Through the American Film Showcase , a joint endeavor of the University of Southern California and the Department of State, Ramona has screened her films and conducted workshops in Morocco and Iraq.  For more of Ramona’s and Capella’s work, you can visit and; and Ramona’s director’s reel can be viewed at:

    They would love to hear from interested teens and their parents who, by reaching out, are under no obligations.  They can be reached via the email listed below.
