Details: If you missed Deann Borshay Liem’s premiere of Geographies of Kinship earlier this year, now’s your chance to see the film! The Berkeley FILM Foundation will be screening the documentary on December 3. 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 erased 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. View the trailer here. Please note that AKA-SF is not sponsoring this event or formally organizing a group viewing.
