DIRECTOR: Linda Goldstein Knowlton - UNITED STATES

Somewhere Between tells the intimate stories of four teenaged girls. They live in different parts of the US in different kinds of families, and are united by one thing: all four were adopted from China because all four had birth parents who could not keep them due to personal circumstances colliding with China’s “One Child Policy.” Of the roughly 80,000 girls that have been adopted from China since 1991, these strong young women allow us to grasp what it is like to come of age in today’s America as transracial adoptees. At the same time, we see them as typical American teenagers doing what teenagers everywhere do—struggling to make sense of their lives. Issues of identity, race, and gender are brought to life through these articulate subjects who approach life with honesty and open hearts. (94 mins.)

In English, Mandarin, and Spanish with English subtitles.
