Made in China: 由Karin L. Lee (Canadian Steel, Chinese Grit; My Sweet Peony) 编写并执导的记录片，记述Canadian领养中国儿童这一社会现像...( 打字太慢)
One day a white lady in the elevator in my school was just staring at me (which made me feel uneasy of course) and said ‘your sweater looks so good...where did you get it?’. I responded with “China...”. After all these compliments, she told me her brother just adopted a girl from China and she was such a doll...My curiosity was triggered at that moment but our elevator conversation ceased very soon. All right, this is basically how I got interested in this topic. As a Chinese I’m happy to see the voices of these children to be heard. As far as I know, made in China focuses on a handful of adopted children from China, predominantly girls, who live in three distinct regions of Canada. Many
of the children live with white families and face the challenge of making sense of their identity and their roots at a very young age. The children, age 5-13, will explain how they deal with issues of race, racism, biological identity and whether they will return to China to search for their roots. Their stories reflect their inner conflicts and how they have come to terms with their hybrid identities. Made in China , I’m hoping, would be a moving portrait of these children and their adoptive families (I heard they are being loved by the white families a lot. Therefore in this sense, they are fortunate comparing to being abandoned and being orphans in China...) You may be able to catch a glance of this film in CTV advertising time these days.
Maybe we can have a small discussion afterwards.
