This film is unique in shape and content. Approved for Adoption is a documentary that tells the story of Jung, a child abandoned after the Korean war, since his adoption by a Belgian family until his return to his birth place, decades after he left it, in order to make amends with his culture. The movie adapts the graphic novel Couleur de Piel: Miel, alternating between external and internal (Jung’s) points of view and between real life images and animation. The audience not only has access to Jung’s memories, but also remembers them just like he does. The film is not only a brave analysis of the teenage years, but also, thanks to the collaboration between Jung - the artist/main character – and Laurent Boileau, tries to explain the feelings of someone who is adopted and moves between gratitude to his new family, the search for him or herself and the disappointment of having been abandoned as a child. Approved for Adoption won the Audience Award in the last edition of Annecy Film Festival.
