Approved for Adoption (9/3/2017)
France | 2012 | 73 min | Laurent Boileau, Jung
Jung. Cartoonist. 42 years old according to his civil status. He is one of those 200 000 adopted Koreans spread around the world. Jung decided to return for the first time in South Korea, in order to breathe the air of his home country, tread the land of his ancestors, and maybe find traces of his biological mother. This trip of reconciliation with his roots and with himself leads our character to recall – in animation – the child he once was and the winding path that made him grow up.
Everything We Want (16/3/2017)
Germany | 2012 | 68 min | Beatrice Möller
Are there any instructions on how to be a woman these days? Everything seems possible for the thirty-somethings tackling their lives today, as the globalized world offers a myriad of options – more than ever before. On the flip side, the certainties we used to lean on have become alarmingly shaky. Past generations’ gender roles and concepts of living are no longer valid for their daughters – and mothers. Over a period of three years, director Beatrice Möller followed three of those young women in their individual search for the “right“ way to live their lives.
