Documentary about....SOMEWHERE BETWEEN

In profiling Chinese adoptees in contemporary America, Linda Goldstein Knowlton's (THE WORLD ACCORDING TO SESAME STREET) deeply moving documentary illustrates that even the most specific of experiences can be universally relatable. Of the roughly 80,000 girls who have been adopted from China since 1989¡ªa decade after China implemented its One Child Policy¡ªthe film intimately follows four teenagers: Haley, Jenna, Ann, and Fang. These four wise-beyond-their-years, yet typical American teens, reveal a heartbreaking sense of self-awareness as they attempt to answer the uniquely human question, ¡°Who am I?¡± They meet and bond with other adoptees, some journey back to China to reconnect with the culture, and some reach out to the orphaned girls left behind. In their own ways, all attempt to make sense of their complex identities. Issues of belonging, race, and gender are brought to life through these articulate subjects, who approach life with honesty and open hearts.

A new documentary by Linda Goldstein Knowlton that sheds light on transracial adoption, in the teenaged adoptees¡¯ own voices. The film played to sold out audiences this month at IFC Center here in New York City, was praised by the LA Times, and is now opening across the U.S. this fall. More info about the film below. In Kansas City, the film is opening at the Tivoli on November 2.
