In The Matter of Cha Jung Hee
Deann Borshay Liem’s autobiographical documentary focuses on the unusual circumstances of the baby marketing industry of her homeland.
The film places a strong focus on the unsavory aspects of South Korea’s lucrative adoption industry.
Born in South Korea in 1956, she was placed in an orphanage as a young child and adopted by an American couple.
Even with today’s economic prosperity, South Korea profitably arranges for thousands of infants and children – mostly the offspring of unwed mothers – to be sent abroad.
