This remarkable animated documentary traces the unconventional upbringing of filmmaker Jung Henin who was adopted from Korea and grew up in Belgium. Sepia-toned animated vignettes - some humorous and some poignant - track Jung from the day he meets his new blond siblings, through elementary school and into his teenage years when his emerging sense of identity begins to create fissures at home. The result is an animated memoir like no other: clear eyed and unflinching, humorous and wry, a tale that will resonate and inform both adult and adoptive families. As Joe Morgenstern of WSJ says “"Approved for Adoption" is tough and tender, a rich resource for anyone who has been adopted, and anyone who plans to adopt.”
