In progress DESCRIPTION
Geographies of Kinship – The Korean Adoption Story is the latest documentary from award-winning filmmaker, Deann Borshay Liem. The film follows Korean adoptees from the U.S. and Europe on their journeys to reconnect with their birth country and piece together their past. Their riveting stories serve as a springboard for exploring the complex history of transnational adoptions of Korean children from the 1950s to the present.
Partly funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities and Cal Humanities and sponsored by Katahdin Productions. The film is currently in post-production and is expected to be released in early 2016.
