The Korean War Baby has always endorsed this film directed and produced by Tammy Chu, a young Korean Adoptee who put several years into making this engaging film on This Thing of Ours-Adoption. The KWB is listed as one of the many many folks who are listed as sponsoring the Post-Production last year just before the debut at the prestigious Pusan International Film Festival in 2009.
If one uses the SEARCH device on the left column (LIGIT SEARCH) and input Resilience, one would find many posts and an advertisement for the film also on the left column.
Recently Tammy Chu and co-producer Rev. Kim appeared at the IKAA Gathering Film Festival (which one will notice the KWB totally endorses) for questions and answers. One question was when would the film be presented to Korean audiences. We were told that soon it will be released with Korean subtitles and narration. This is excellent, for ‘preaching to the choir’ the KADs is not enough but the story needs to be told to Korean society as well. Hopefully even on Korean Television, wouldn’t THAT be great?
Here is the IKAA synopsis of the films:
“With every new family created by adoption, another family gets torn apart”.
This is just NOT TRUE, sorry, I am moved to protest this erroneous/grievous “HOLLYWOOD HYPE” for that is what it is, a catchy phrase that sounds good but even this story does not support this. I am loath to spoil the story of the film, however, BUT the story of Resilience is ONLY:
Then in Minnesota we find THIS:

|Well HERE we see again the line:|
"With every new family created by adoption, another family gets torn apart."
