The Event Program

  • Movie presentation of Somewhere Between

    In profiling Chinese adoptees in contemporary America, Linda Goldstein Knowlton's (THE
    WORLD ACCORDING TO SESAME STREET) deeply moving documentary illustrates that
    even the most specific of experiences can be universally relatable. Of the roughly 80,000 girls
    who have been adopted from China since 1989—a decade after China implemented its One
    Child Policy—the film intimately follows four teenagers: Haley, Jenna, Ann, and Fang. These
    four wise-beyond-their-years, yet typical American teens, reveal a heartbreaking sense of selfawareness
    as they attempt to answer the uniquely human question, “Who am I?” They meet
    and bond with other adoptees, some journey back to China to reconnect with the culture, and
    some reach out to the orphaned girls left behind. In their own ways, all attempt to make sense
    of their complex identities. Issues of belonging, race, and gender are brought to life through
    these articulate subjects, who approach life with honesty and open hearts.
