“Somewhere Between” Documentary

TRAILER: Somewhere Between – A Feature Documentary from Linda Knowlton on Vimeo.

My daughter’s name is Ruby. She is five. When my husband and I adopted her from China we had no idea what lay ahead. In an instant, we became a family. I began to think about Ruby’s future and started to wonder how her coming of age would differ from mine. SOMEWHERE BETWEEN tells intimate stories of what it is like to come-of-age as a trans-racial adoptee in today’s America, as examined through the POV of some of the 79,562 adopted girls from China. Through these girls we will explore identity, racism, and gender. Through the voices of these young women, we will see not just their lives, but our own, reflected back to us – whether we are adoptive families or not. SOMEWHERE BETWEEN will start a dialogue about what we see, who we are, and the changing face of the American family. This film is about the 79,562 girls growing up in America. Right now.

If you have Netflix, you should definitely check this one out. I’m not gonna lie. At one point, I did cry.

Very powerful and moving.

A Blast from the Past: Kevin Spacey

Back in 2008, the movie 21 starring Kevin Spacey came out in movie theatres all over the country.

And guess who made the cut? We did 🙂

Check out some of the scenes that were shot in Boston’s Chinatown. It was a very long night.

Not sure how many times we had to run around, but it did get dark and they did have to break out the flood lights.

All in all, it was thrilling, fun, exciting, and tiring. We made the cut this time so if you ever watch the movie, you’ll see us for like 10 seconds 😛
