Filmmaker Interview

Deann Borshay Liem

Filmmaker Deann Borshay Liem talks about the making of In the Matter of Cha Jung Hee, in which she, a Korean American adoptee, searches for her roots. Liem's earlier film, First Person Plural, had also explored her adoption. Liem talks about the connections between the two films, what it's like to grow up haunted by an identity that was never hers and more.
