Deann Borshay Liem: Uncut (2000)
In 1966, Deann Borshay Liem was adopted by an American family and sent from Korea to her new home in California. There the memory of her birth family was nearly obliterated, until recurring dreams led her to investigate her own past, and she discovered that her Korean mother was very much alive. In this archived interview concerning the making of First Person Plural, Liem discusses the need to have conversations between adoptees and their adoptive parents, and why these discussions sometimes never happen.
