Adoption Documentary: "Somewhere Between" Adopted Chinese Girls Travel Back to China

-Very nice documentary. 

TRAILER: Somewhere Between - A Feature Documentary from Linda Knowlton on Vimeo.
My daughter's name is Ruby. She is five. When my husband and I adopted her from China we had no idea what lay ahead. In an instant, we became a family. I began to think about Ruby's future and started to wonder how her coming of age would differ from mine. SOMEWHERE BETWEEN tells intimate stories of what it is like to come-of-age as a trans-racial adoptee in today's America, as examined through the POV of some of the 79,562 adopted girls from China. Through these girls we will explore identity, racism, and gender. Through the voices of these young women, we will see not just their lives, but our own, reflected back to us - whether we are adoptive families or not. SOMEWHERE BETWEEN will start a dialogue about what we see, who we are, and the changing face of the American family. This film is about the 79,562 girls growing up in America. Right now. http://somewherebetweenmovie.com

What is Somewhere Between about?

There are over 80,000 children adopted from China now growing up in the U.S. – over 90% of them are girls. Somewhere Between tells the intimate stories of four of these teenaged girls. They have different kinds of families but are united by one thing: all four were adopted from China, because they had birth parents who could not keep them, due to personal circumstances colliding with China's 'One Child Policy'. These wonderful young women allow us to grasp what it is like to come-of-age in today's America as trans-racial adoptees. At the same time, we see them as typical American teenagers doing what teenagers everywhere do…struggling to answer the question, ‘Who Am I?’

Through these young women, we ourselves pause to consider who we are—both as individuals and as a nation of immigrants. And with great honesty and courage, these four girls open their hearts to experience love, compassion, and self-acceptance....and show us the way, too.
