Approved For Adoption

About the DVD
This remarkable animated doc traces the unconventional upbringing of the filmmaker Jung Henin, one of thousands of Korean children adopted by Western families after the end of the Korean War. It is the story of a boy stranded between two cultures. The filmmaker tells his story using his own animation intercut with snippets of Super-8 family footage and archival film. The result is an animated memoir like no other: clear-eyed and unflinching, humorous and wry, and above all, inspiring in the capacity of the human heart.

My Take on the DVD
This was a powerful movie that really captured the emotion, humor, and overall human nature to adoption. The movie was funny and clever, and in the end you have a movie that will make you want to watch and learn more. The movie was well written and tackles an issue that I have not see tackled much. The writers have embodied so much in this that will make you continue to watch from beginning to end!
