"Geographies of Kinship" ~ A Documentary


                                                  Deann Borshay Liem is a documentary
                                                               filmmaker and adoptee.

Her first two films, "First Person Plural" and "In TheMatter of Cha Jung Hee" are about her own adoption from Korea into the Borshay family in Fremont California, and her subsequent search to find the girl she was switched with before she came to the US.

"Geographies of Kinship" (her third documentary, currently in production) follows five Korean adoptees from the U.S. and Europe on their journeys to reconnect with their birth country and piece
together their past.

Their riveting stories serve as a springboard for exploring the history of transnational adoptions from Korea, from the 1950s to the present.
