SOMEWHERE BETWEEN, director Linda Goldstein Knowlton

In profiling Chinese adoptees in contemporary America, director Linda Goldstein Knowlton’s deeply moving documentary illustrates that even the most specific of experiences can be universally relatable. Of the roughly 80,000 girls who have been adopted from China since 1989—a decade after China implemented its One Child Policy—the film intimately follows four teenagers: Haley, Jenna, Ann, and Fang. These four wise-beyond-their-years, yet typical American teens, reveal a heartbreaking sense of self-awareness as they attempt to answer the uniquely human question, “Who am I?” Director Linda Goldstein Knowlton stops by to explore the film’s richly textured perspective.
