6. The Return.

We return to Hot Docs for The Return (Malene Choi, 2018), a hybrid documentary (i.e., one that includes fictional elements). It tells the story of two adoptees from South Korea who grew up in Denmark and who return to Korea to seek their biological parents, with complicated results.

Afterwards Chris Piuma and Lochin Brouillard had some tea and discussed the film and its resonances with Lochin’s experience as an adoptee from China who grew up in Canada.
