TAKEN IN was written and directed by personal filmmaker, Chris White. It was made entirely with cash and in-kind contributions from friends and family. The story (co-written with his wife Emily), was inspired by Chris’ theatre work with students at a therapeutic boarding school. The film is dedicated to his own teenage daughter, Gibson.

First Visualization of TAKEN IN.
This snapshot—taken in Athens GA, in the late summer of 2009—was used as an early "visualization" of the TAKEN IN story.
Something about the chaotic nature of the graffiti (discovered on the inside of a men's restroom door at The Grill) made me think of Brooklyn's life...and her relationship with her father.
