A South Korean Adoptee Turns His Personal Story Into a Global Project


This radio segment from WNYC describes a new audio-visual exhibition in New York City that tells the stories of 100 "former orphan" adoptees born in South Korea who are now adults living all over the world. The installation was created by filmmaker and South Korean adoptee Glenn Morey and his wife Julie Morey. In the segment, Morey shares his views on domestic and inter-country adoption, noting that there is little to no domestic adoption in South Korea and the cultural contributions to that. The project explores identity and culture and the experiences of inter-country adoptees.
