IN TWO WEEKS! OPEN TO THE USC COMMUNITY & THE PUBLIC! Join us for two
* A FILM SCREENING of “The Woman, the Orphan, & the Tiger” (2010), an
experimental film by Jane Jin Kaisen and Guston Sondin-Kung. As a
project that challenges the dominant narrative of transnational
adoption as a “humanitarian” effort, “The Woman, the Orphan, & the
Tiger” incisively articulates the ways in which children’s and women’s
bodies have been violently mobilized for the “national security” and
economic growth of the U.S. and South Korea.
Date: March 21st, Wednesday Evening, from 7-9 PM (light food included)
Location: Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC) in Downtown Los Angeles
1145 Wilshire Blvd # 200 Los Angeles, CA 90017. FREE PARKING ON ROOF

* A CRITICAL DISCUSSION of “The Woman the Orphan, & the Tiger” (2010).
Our distinguished panelists will discuss the history and impact of
Korean transnational adoption– and the ways in which Korean adoptees
have critiqued and challenged the adoption industry through film, art,
and literary projects.
