Nearing the home stretch....
“After 3 years of production, we are excited to announce the film is almost complete. A lot has happened since filming began in the lives of the people we've followed that has changed the course of the film. What started with stories of three Korean birth mothers has emerged into a story of one birth mother and her son. We meet Myung-ja and Brent after they reunite on Korean television and have followed them ever since to find out if a bond between mother and child stays strong after decades and oceans apart.
RESILIENCE strives to shed light on a side of transnational adoption that is largely overlooked and misunderstood - the relationship between birth mother and adoptee. It's a story about love, loss, and family.
The deadline to finish the film is September 20, 2009 for a world premiere at the Pusan International Film Festival (http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LnBpZmYub3Jn) in South Korea this October! It is being edited now and almost done, however we are short of funds to pay for final expenses, like sound mixing and subtitles, to get the film ready for the big screen.
To raise the money, we are launching a viral funding drive with a goal of $10,000 (USD) by September 1, 2009. To be successful this funding drive is reliant on donations from individuals like you. Please consider making a donation by going to our website: http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LnJlc2lsaWVuY2VmaWxtLmNvbS9TdXBwb3J0Lmh0bWw=. Any amount counts and is greatly appreciated!! If you unable to donate, we encourage everyone to share this message with friends and family.
Anyone who contributes $100 or more, will receive a complimentary DVD when the film is released. And remember, donations made by US residents are 100% tax deductible. Donate now and spread the word!!

The Korean War Baby Comments:
If you are part of the Triad of Adoption, know someone who is, or just a sympathetic person concerned with the issues surrounding Adoption. Please donate whatever you can, come on sacrifice ‘one night of partying’ and send in your bit. Even the Korean War Baby figured out how to open a Paypal account. There are several ways to donate. Every film or book that gives part of the massively complex multi-level “This Thing of Ours-Adoption” helps towards improving and informing everyone.
