Approved for Adoption

Because You d Approved for Adoption
Drama Animation 20121h 10mOn: Kanopy Country: Belgium 

This remarkable animated documentary 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. Animated vignettes – some humorous and some poetic – track Jung from the day he first meet 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 above all, inspiring in the capacity of the human heart.Approved for Adoption featuring William Coryn and Christelle Cornil is streaming with subscription on Kanopy, available for rent or purchase on iTunes, available for rent or purchase on Google Play, and 2 others. It's an animation and drama movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.2 (578 votes).
