Bring Your Own Doc : “Somewhere Between,” Adopted Chinese Girls Finding Identity in the US w/ Linda Goldstein Knowlton
Brought by TheLipTV
This is a piece I made about my reunion with my biological family in Seoul a year ago. I found inspiration from Deann and other adoptees who had searched for their Korean families and had shared their experience with the adoptee community. I’m not sure I would have had the courage to search and share my experience without knowing about those who had done so before me. I hope we all continue to share our stories and inspire new generations to explore their identity and relationship with Korea. —Schuyler
Opening The Bird Cage
This is an experimental short documentary about my adoption and reunion in the Philippines. I made a lot of it poetic, as I use my mixed media as a metaphor of a “cathedral” I built inside myself when I felt broken in the past, with a placement of facts of my adoption, photos of my baby files/photo albums, and personal comments before and after the reunion.
In response to some of the negativity that’s been circulating the KAD groups online.

“Where Do I Belong?” - Adopted the Movie
Korean adoptee talks about the conflicting feelings of belonging and being an outsider when she first moved to San Francisco.
Regardless of our adoption story, a successful or unsuccessful reunion, the desire to search for our family, or our upbringing, adoption has brought us all together, that is something we can all agree on.
