Dirs. Laurent Boileau, Jung Henin. France. 2012, 75 mins. Digital projection. In French with English subtitles. This award-winning animated documentary traces the unconventional upbringing of filmmaker Jung Henin, a Korean child adopted by a Western family after the end of the Korean War. Humorous and poetic animated vignettes track Jung from the day he first meets his blond siblings, through elementary school, and into his teenage years, when his emerging sense of identity begins to create fissures at home and ignite the latent biases of his adoptive parents.
