A Letter For Sang-Ah


“A Letter For Sang-Ah” is a hybrid investigative and vérite documentary that immerses audiences in the emotional complexities of Korean culture, family expectations, and adoption practices. The film follows three characters, each who provide a unique and illuminating perspective on single parenting and adoption in Korean culture. “A Letter For Sang-Ah” expands the prevailing adoptee-centered narrative to include the seldom heard stories of the birth mothers themselves. By giving them equal weight in the narrative, it artfully weaves concepts of motherhood, country, identity, and loss to paint a larger broader picture of adoption and its effects on society.
