The story of
adopted children from China!
An award winning
documentary film, directed and written by Karin Lee,
"Made in China" looks at adopted children from
China by families in Canada. The children, age 5 - 13,
are predominantly girls and are disarmingly frank and
poignantly insightful as they tell their own stories and
speak about racial difference and biological identity.
Many of the
children live with Caucasian families and face the
challenge of making sense of their identity and their
roots at a very young age. Their stories reflect their
inner conflicts and how they have come to terms with
their hybrid identities.
sometimes vulnerable, the children reveal the joys and
pain of living in a visibly adoptive family. Made in
China is a moving portrait of several remarkable children
and their adoptive families whose stories are powerful,
sad, humorous and inspirational.
