Title: Geographies of Kinship - The Korean Adoption Story
Writer: Deann Borshay Liem and Laurie Coyle
Director: Deann Borshay Liem
Producer: Deann Borshay Liem
Abstract: Geographies of Kinship-The Korean Adoption Story is a 90-minute documentary that will explore the history of transnational adoptions of Korean children from the 1950s to the present, the role these adoptions played in the transformation of Korean postwar society, and the impact they have had on the ongoing 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, transracial adoption, and cross-cultural kinship in our increasingly globalized world.
