Approved for adoption (Couleur de peau: miel)

Adoption is a long a tough process for everyone, and a film tackling the issue sure isn't a walk in the park. Now an autobiographical animation movie / documentary on adoption, imagine the challenge...

After years of hard work, "Approved for adoption" ("Couleur de peau: miel" in French - "Skin color: honey") will be released in France on June 6, and the following week in Belgium, the country that adopted Jung shortly after he was found, at the age of 5, wandering alone on the streets of Seoul.

Now* a 42 year old cartoonist married to another adopted Korean, Jung returns for the first time to his hometown, an emotional journey directed by Laurent Boileau and Jung.

I've been waiting for this jewel for quite some time, and I can't wait to share the trailer that's just been released today (in French - no subtitles yet):

Seoul Village 2012
NEW : follow Seoul Village on Facebook and Twitter

* make that 47 today... a long process, indeed.
