Development of a 90-minute documentary film examining the history of transnational adoption of Korean children from the 1950s to the present.

GEOGRAPHIES OF KINSHIP - THE KOREAN ADOPTION STORY (working title) is a 90-minute documentary that explores the history of transnational adoptions of Korean children from the 1950s to the present, the role these adoptions played in the transformation of Korean society in the postwar era, and the impact they have made on the on-going evolution of family formation in the West. Interweaving elements of historical narrative, contemporary scholarship and character-driven stories, GEOGRAPHIES OF KINSHIP will examine the complex interplay of geopolitics, trans-racial adoption, and cross-cultural kinship and identity in our increasingly globalized world.
