Abandoned, Adopted Here
An independent documentary looking at identity, adoption, transracial
adoption and being British-Chinese.
This totally self-funded, self-produced work started life back in 2010. From an almost "throw away" comment from a fellow adoptee, this project has been brought to life. The project initially started filming in 2010. Making a documentary is unique. You're dealing with human variables that you can't always control. How interviewees will react (or not) on camera. Answers to questions may suddnely open all sorts of doors and make you want to aks other questions.
It was only Lucy's determination and dedication to the advocacy for transracial adoptees has seen this project from idea to actuality; in the process having to overcome many challenges including being trolled and griefed online for making a documentary about transracial adoptees.
The documentary was completed in July 2016
Since then it has won critical acclaim and been screened in several international Film Festivals including Minnesota Transracial Film Festival, World Film Festival in Estonia, Women Over Fifties Film Festival, Crossing The Screen Film Festival
