CLOSURE, Directed by Bryan Tucker. Pacific NW Filmmaker present for Filmmaker Talkback.
THURSDAY, APRIL 18 at the 2013 Langston Hughes African American Film Festival

4:00 p.m.    Closure (USA, 2012; 73 min.) Directed by Bryan Tucker. Pacific NW Filmmaker present for Filmmaker Talkback.

Since Angela was a young girl, she had unrelenting questions surrounding her birth story. Who was her birth mother? Birth father? Did they abandon her at the hospital? How did she get from Tennessee to the northwest corner of Washington State? Angela was adopted at the age of one, under the terms of a 'closed' adoption, as her her birth parents chose not to provide any information. As an African-American raised by a Caucasian couple in a diverse family, consisting of seven other adopted siblings, Angela had a confused sense of identity growing up. As she grew older it became apparent that the unanswered questions about her story would continue to haunt her if she did not at least attempt to find the answers. This documentary journeys alongside Angela for a period of two years during her search, leading up to some key defining moments in her life: finding her birth mother and being rejected by her at age 26; finding her birth father and learning that he never knew she existed; and reuniting with her birth mother one year later for a redemptive climax to her pursuit of closure. A surprising conclusion brings Angela's birth mother to her hometown in Washington State, and we learn why she kept Angela a secret from her family for 26 years.
