MOVIE – Switzerland 2017 (Tellfim)
200,000 Korean children were scattered across the globe after the Korean War ended. Jung is one of them. He was born in Seoul in 1965 and adopted by a Belgian family in 1971. As an adaptation of the comic novel, the film shows key moments in the life of Jung: Orphanage, his arrival in Belgium, family life, the difficult youth. He tells us the events that have led him to accept his diversity. Uprooting, identity, integration and maternal love are as much a topic as the multi-ethnic patchwork family.
