Asian Adult Adoptees of Washington and the Wing Luke Asian Museum
invite you to a screening of Tammy Tolle's "Searching for Go-Hyang"
and discussion about adoption from Asia.

Adopted children from Asia are making an impact on American society.
Over the past 50 years, an estimated 120,000 children born in South
Korea were adopted by families in the United States. Many of these
children are now adults who struggle with their dual identity.

"Searching for Go-Hyang" follows Tammy and her twin sister to Korea.
Sent away by their parents for the promise of a better life in the
United States, they instead suffered mental and physical abuse by
their adoptive parents, including the erasure of their cultural
heritage and language. In an emotional reunion, the sisters meet with
their birthparents and younger brothers after 14 years of separation.

After the screening, Andy Beil, Tim Holm, Cari Kennedy, Barbara Kim,
Amy Moline, Jean Seeley, Katie Tupper and others will comment about
the documentary and tell personal stories about their experiences
surrounding adoption.

We hope you can attend this illuminating event. Please post and/or
forward this message. Thanks.

"Searching for Go-Hyang" is distributed by Women Make Movies (212)
Devoted to preserving and presenting the history, art and culture of Asian
Pacific Americans.
