Great news from the Resilience Team:
We are very proud to announce that within just four weeks we have exceeded the funding goal for Resilience, with a grand total raised of $11,037.25!! We could not have accomplished this without all of your incredible support and generosity. We have been putting these contributions towards our post-production expenses such as editing, music composing, and sound mixing.
We are excited to announce that Resilience will premiere at the Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF) on Sunday, October 11 at 1:00pm
in Pusan, Korea. For those of you who are in Korea, we hope you can join us! For those of you outside of Korea, we hope to see you at a future screening near you.
What first began as a film about the experiences of Korean birth mothers has evolved into a story about a birth mother and her son. We hope that this single story will be just as powerful, if not more so, and will help to deepen understanding towards the experiences of birth mothers and adoptees everywhere.
We plan to make an additional DVD supplement to accompany Resilience using other birth mothers’ stories and interviews that were filmed. We will begin working on this after the PIFF premiere.
This final funding drive helped bring us to the finish line. The outpouring of support has been truly amazing from our friends and supporters. Thank you again for your generosity, support, and for spreading word about the film. We couldn’t have come this far without you.
Special thanks to those who graciously gave $1,000 and to the Korean Unwed Mothers Support Network who further helped us reach our goal with a donation of $3,000.
We are officially closing our $10K funding drive but donations are still welcome. Future contributions will go towards distribution and help to complete our supplemental DVD.

THANK YOU from the entire Resilience team!!
Korean War Baby comments:
Don’t forget that you can still be part of supporting this project through the coming ‘distribution’ expenses and ‘promotional costs’ ahead. The budget of making a film is just part, post-production, then distribution/advertising (promotional), all these must be paid out BEFORE one dollar comes in!
