[CANCELLATION] 19/08 : screening "Approved for Adoption" [French Animation Film Festival] [fr]
Due to technical problem, programme “Outdoor Screening: Approved for
Adoption (French Animation Film Festival Screening Series)”,
originally scheduled on 2015/08/19, will be cancelled. Sorry for any
Please stay tuned for the latest updates of any make-up screening on
the Comix Home Base and Hong Kong Arts Centre official websites.
As part of the French Animation Film Festival which is held from February 4, 2015 to January 20, 2016, the Comix Home Base presents on Wednesday, August 19 at 7:30pm, Approved for Adoption by Laurent Boileau & Jung Henin.
200,000 Korean children have been dispersed throughout the world since the end of the Korean War.
Jung, born in 1965 in Seoul and adopted in 1971 by a Belgian family, is one of these children.
Adapted from a graphic novel, Approved for Adoption takes a look at a few key moments in Jung’s life: the orphanage, arriving in Belgium, family life, a difficult adolescence... It recounts the events that have led Jung to accept the contradictions of his existence. Being uprooted, identity issues, integration, maternal love, and a reconstituted and mixed race family are just some of the themes that are broached with poetry, humor and emotion.
Consisting of an amazing mix of live-action and drawn images, between present and past, and employing historical and family archives, Approved for Adoption is an animated autobiographical tale that breaks new ground.
