ACF 270: "Adopted" - screening & discussion @ The Korea Society

This Friday, April 17th, 2009, The Korea Society will present a screening of Adopted, a documentary film that explores seldom spoken about aspects of international adoption through two stories. A 32-year-old Korean-born woman makes one last effort to bond with her dying adoptive mother, while a young couple, flush with hope, begins the process of adopting a baby girl from China.

This emotionally intense film juxtaposes hope and possibility with a view of adoption that does not shy away from its intrinsic complexities. Though the two families are at the opposite ends of their journeys, the stories converge to show that love is not always enough to make a family work.

A discussion and a Q&A session with Director and Producer Barb Lee and Producer Nancy Kim Parsons will follow the screening.

Schedule:
6:00 PM-6:30 PM ♦ Registration and Reception
6:30 PM-8:30 PM ♦ Screening and Q&A
