Geographies of Kinship

In this powerful tale about the rise of Korea’s global adoption program, four adult adoptees return to their country of birth and recover the personal histories that were lost when they were adopted. Raised in foreign families, each sets out on a journey to reconnect with their roots, mapping the geographies of kinship that bind them to a homeland they never knew. 

Geographies of Kinship is the recipient of major grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, California Humanities, and the Berkeley Film Foundation. Additional support is provided by The Lawrence Choy Lowe Memorial Fund, Center for Cultural Innovation, the Channing and Popai Liem Education Foundation, and our generous Kickstarter supporters.
