DisOrient 2020 Closing Night Film - Found in Korea with Strangers' Reunion
Strangers' Reunion (2019) Short Narrative   13 min
English, Korean   UK
Directed by Liz Sargent

Mira, a Korean-American adoptee travels to Hong Kong to meet her birth mother for the first time. Impulsively, she invites Yura to visit her in her hotel suite the day before their official meeting in the hope that theyll find a connection before a translator gets in the way. However, with only a basic understanding of each others languages and, to varying degrees, their own guilt and prejudices, misunderstandings threaten their tenuous attempts at connection, until an emotional breakthrough leads them to hope there is resolution  and a future  ahead for them both.
