Overview

This heart-rending documentary follows the lives of three troubled boys for an entire year as they undergo the Green Chimneys program. Established in 1947, the Green Chimneys program is housed upon a working farm in Brewster, New York. It is designed for severely disaffected inner city kids, many of whom have been abandoned or abused, and teaches them socialization skills by assigning each one an animal to nurture. When the film begins, there are over 100 children, mostly boys between the ages of 6 and 21, none of whom were able to cope within the foster home system. Twelve-year-old Eddie comes from a family of seven; he has been abused most of his life by his drug-addicted homeless parents and has been a part of the social service system since he was three. Thirteen-year-old Anthony cannot cope with his mother's death and has an uncontrollably violent temper. Mike is eleven years old. He has been in the foster care system since his mother abandoned him when he was two. Filmed as cinema verite, the story follows the boys through therapy, school, and their daily chores. It also chronicles family visits. These visits comprise some of the film's most wrenching scenes.

    Horse Manure & Propaganda

    Green Chimneys is an RTC/abuse mill in Brewster NY. Abuse mill is the current verbiage and Green Chimneys is just that - an abuse mill. Dr. Samuel B. Ross Jr. made his living by promoting animals. If animals cured everything and everybody, then explain Philip Zagarella and Eric Napoletano, two Green Chimneys students who grew up to be rapists and murders. Napoletano is featured in the book by Richard T. Pienciak called "Mama's Boy: The Story of a Serial Killer & His Mother."

    This dvd is nothing more than an exercise in lauding Dr. Samuel B. Ross Jr. and braying along with his one-trick pony opera of how animals cure everybody and every condition. When I was there, I was abused daily. The animals ALWAYS took priority over the kids who were there. Animals were not abused, but kids were. Hawks and predators were hired there and many survivors have come forward with accounts equally in some cases and even more horrific than mine.

    I was there and was beaten and battered daily as were so many others. Staff freely abused kids. There were even public beatings. At no time have I ever seen anybody being given reason to feel any animal there belonged to them. Farm labor for the kids was mandatory. Staff brought their pets, who got carta blanca. Green Chimneys survivors are coming forward. I am one of many Green Chimneys survivors. I can tell you that abuse does take place there and there are documented cases. Dr. Samuel B. Ross Jr. loves telling parents/guardians of newly arriving inmates that he'd throw the Pope out of his office if a kid had a problem. That is pure horse manure. No kid who valued his or her life would ever go to Ross for protection - that would be like a lamb calling on a wolf for help.
