My daughter is in missions. When my daughter was young, she was part of a "City Council for Youth." A girl that had been a friend of hers since first grade, and who attended church with us, and whose family (until this happened) we believed to be good Christians - went to school together, and often ended up at the same functions together. (As in school related functions.) The friend has always been star-struck and hungry for fame. One day this friend showed up at an awards-party with a New York MTV camera crew in tow, saying she had been asked to participate in a documentary on how one girl in a small conservative, religious town, dealt with issues like sex-ed. About 10 minutes into this, the "producer" approached the young man my daughter was dating and asked him to pose at the "friend's" boyfriend, because it would "make the documentary more real" if the girl had a boyfriend. The young man refused. My daughter is very beautiful. I'm not just a mom bragging, she has often been approached by friends who are involved in television or advertising to be a model and has always refused. She believes strongly that parading her body is wrong. I think she feels more strongly about it even than her Dad and I do. She noticed the camera that was supposed to be following her friend, was spending a lot of time following HER. She asked them to stop. In the mean time, we learned the film was basically mocking Christian beliefs, and told the family we wanted absolutely nothing to do with it. Our daughter was still a minor. She went to another school function, and the producer showed up, and started handing out "scripts". The kids threw them out and told the producer to leave them alone. The crew showed up at some of the council meetings, again, filming my daughter. Again, my daughter asked them to not include her. The girl's father showed up and begged my ex-husband to sign a release form saying the producers really wanted to use the footage that included my daughter. He refused. Then they contacted me. I refused. A few months after my daughter's 18th birthday, a man called me and said, "I was editing this film for the Sun Film Festival and we have a lot of footage on your daughter, but we have misplaced the release." I said, "You never had one. We never gave one, and won't." He tried to talk me into one, saying it would take major editing to get her out of the film. I said, "Edit." Three days later, the other child's mom showed up at the door, asking for my daughter. Basically she said, "You're 18, you can release it yourself." My daughter refused. Her other Christian friends refused. Well, the film WON the Sun film festival. This morning, an old friend stopped by my office and said, "Hon, am I losing my mind? You know that film about sex education that makes fun of Christians? I would have sworn I saw your daughter in it. The scenes at the youth council meeting." I called my daughter, and she said, "I just heard. Matt just called me. He said it is at the swimming pool." I said, "They have pictures of you in a swimsuit on a film about free-sex?" She said, "I don't know, Mom. I don't remember any cameras around me at a swimming pool." Thankfully, she was NOT in a swim suit. She had attended an event held "around" a pool, but was in a dress-suit, not a swimsuit. STILL - we don't know what to do. Do we hire an attorney? Do we call our own press conference?
