CAAMFest is thrilled to honor auteur Deann Borshay Liem as one of their 2019 Spotlight Honorees. Equally respected as an award-winning filmmaker as well as a pioneer storyteller for Korean adoptees world-wide, Liem has made an indelible mark in the documentary landscape. As part of Liem’s spotlight, CAAMFest is thrilled to partner with the San Francisco Public Library to showcase the 20th anniversary of FIRST PERSON PLURAL, Liem's Emmy Award-nominated documentary. 

In 1966, Deann Borshay Liem was adopted by an American family and was sent from Korea to her new home. Growing up in California, the memory of her birth family was nearly obliterated until recurring dreams lead Deann to discover the truth: her Korean mother was very much alive. Bravely uniting her biological and adoptive families, Deann's heartfelt journey makes First Person Plural a poignant essay on family, loss, and the reconciling of two identities.
