Review of ABANDONED ADOPTED HERE, the New Doc by British Director & Actress LUCY SHEEN

"From 50s, 60s Colonial Hong Kong to pre-multicultural UK, a group of Hong Kong foundlings were transracially adopted. Lucy interviewed a few of her fellow adoptees to explore whether their experience of identity and belonging had been as challenging as hers. How far do other British East Asians feel a lack of belonging or identity or is it just something that culturally displaced babies and children feel?

This documentary has been selected for screening at Singapore World International Film Festival, Hong Kong World International Film Festival and Minnesota Transracial Film Festival."

“Abandoned Adopted Here is one of the best treatments of transracial identity in film that I have seen.” 

—Dawn Tomlinson, President of AdopSource Minneapolis.
