الشريط “بين بين في مكان ما”

يحكي الشريط قصصا حميمية لأربع فتيات في سن المراهقة. يعشن في مناطق مختلفة من الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية، وسط أسر مختلفة، لهن قاسم مشترك واحد: لقد تم تبنيهن من الصين، وذلك لأن آباؤهن وأمهاتهن البيولوجيين لم يتمكنوا من الاحتفاظ بهن بسبب الظروف الشخصية التي تتعارض مع سياسة “طفل واحد” في الصين.

الشابات المذكورات تمكننا من فهم مامعنى أن تكون من سلالة مختلفة وتم تبنيك في أمريكا اليوم، وفي نفس الوقت ننظر إليهن كنمودج لمراهقات أمريكيات يتصرفن كسائر المراهقين، ويكافحن من أجل إعطاء معنى لحياتهن.

من خلال قصص الشابات المذكورات، واكتشافهن لهويتهن، نتوقف نحن أنفسنا لنرى من نحن كأفراد وكأمة للمهاجرين: الهوية، والعنصرية، والنوع الاجتماعي … وهي قضايا ذات أبعاد كبيرة يتناولها الشريط الوثائقي “بين بين في مكان ما”. وبأمانة كبيرة وشجاعة، تفتح الشابات الأربع قلوبهن ليعشن الحب، والرحمة، والقبول الذاتي

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN tells the intimate stories of four teenaged girls. They live in different parts of the US, in different kinds of families and are united by one thing: all four were adopted from China, because all four had birth parents who could not keep them, due to personal circumstances colliding with China’s ‘One Child Policy’. These strong young women allow us to grasp what it is like to come-of-age in today’s America as trans-racial adoptees. At the same time, we see them as typical American teenagers doing what teenagers everywhere do…struggling to make sense of their lives.

Through these young women, and their explorations of who they are, we ourselves pause to consider who we are—both as individuals and as a nation of immigrants. Identity, racism, and gender…these far-reaching issues are explored in the documentary. And with great honesty and courage, these four girls open their hearts to experience love, compassion, and self-acceptance
