The Hanji Box

Director: Nora Jacobson
2017 - Narrative - USA - Unrated

June 2 @ 7:00 pm

How does it feel to be adopted? To adopt a child from a different culture? Nora Jacobson’s latest film,The Hanji Box, is a quietly compelling drama about Hannah, an American mother emerging heartbroken from a divorce, and Rose, her adopted Korean daughter. When the mysterious Hanji Box—Rose’s precious link to Korea—is broken, Hannah travels to New York’s Koreatown to mend it. There she meets a charismatic Korean artist who takes her on a journey of cultural discovery. Nuanced performances by Hanover actress Suzanne Dudley (Schon), Toronto-based Daniel Park, and New York actress Natalie Kim illuminate issues of longing and belonging, loss, mothering, identity, and US-Korean history. The film was inspired by a memoir written by Jacobson’s childhood friend, Meg Daiss Hurley.

Q&A following screening with director Nora Jacobson, Meg Hurley, Natalie Kim and more of the cast and crew.
