Description


Synopsis:

Adopted ID uncovers Judith Craig Morency's extraordinary journey as she bravely returns to Haiti to find her birth parents. From the poverty-stricken families who’ve given up a child, to the foreign families looking to adopt one, these disparate worlds collide amid her quest to solve the puzzle of her past. With the insights and sounds of pre-earthquake Haiti as a backdrop, these intersecting lives provide a rare and intimate insight into the conditions surrounding transracial adoption.


What Folks Have Said:


"...It's one of those great documentary moments, riveting, extraordinary, powerful and moving. And shockingly frustrating."

-Vikram Jayanti, Producer/Director, The Agony and Esctasy of Phil Spector


"Adopted ID is a fascinating, powerful and ultimately heart-warming film. Delivered with a genuine insight and intimacy"

-Ollie Tait, Executive Producer, ITV London Studios

"This film intelligently presents a rare, intimate insight into the realities of loss, hope and confusion that comes with cross-cultural adoption. Timely and important."

-Gaylene Gould, Head of Cinema and Events, BFI Southbank
