Join us Wednesday, December 4th at 6p for 2012 French movie "COULEUR DE PEAU: MIEL" / "APPROVED FOR ADOPTION". In French with English subtitles.

 

APPROVED FOR ADOPTION: AN ANIMATED MEMOIR by Jung Henin. This remarkable animated doc traces the unconventional upbringing of the filmmaker Jung Henin, one of thousands of Korean children adopted by Western families after the end of the Korean War. It is the story of a boy stranded between two cultures. Sepia-toned animated vignettes – some humorous and some poetic – track Jung from the day he first meets his new blond siblings, through elementary school, and into his teenage years, when his emerging sense of identity begins to create fissures at home and ignite the latent biases of his adoptive parents. The filmmaker tells his story using his own animation intercut with snippets of super-8 family footage and archival film. The result is an animated memoir like no other: clear-eyed and unflinching, humorous and wry, and above all, inspiring in the capacity of the human heart. Winner Audience Award & UNICEF Award – Annecy Int. Animation Festival.  Sponsored by Rainbow World, a cultural non-profit dedicated to exploring issues around adoption, as part of National Adoption Month.
