Ricki’s Promise, a film by Changfu Chang

8.5x11_poster_CFFWhat happens when an 18 year old American girl adopted from China returns to her birthland to spend summer vacation living with her recently discovered biological parents?   That’s the situation of “Ricki’s Promise”, a new feature length documentary. The 84 minute film is set to have its world premiere at the Cincinnati World Film Festival on Saturday, Sept 20 at 3:45 PM.  Directed by prolific producer/ director Changfu Chang, who led the filming in China of 2010 of our own documentary “The Invisible Red Thread”, his latest documentary follows Ricki Mudd, 18, as she returns to China to embark on a journey to understand the past. In a culture now foreign to her, with biological parents she barely knows, Ricki  struggles to unravel her own identity. Meanwhile, her biological parents confront old wounds as they get to know a daughter they last saw nearly two decades earlier Set against the backdrop of culture, Chinese politics, and  larger adoption ethics, this film will soon be widely available for sale. Changfu has a special connection with adoptees and their families, as we got to see when he directed our filming crew in China. We wish him great success with his newest documentary!

    I just saw “The Invisible Red Thread” at Chinese Heritage camp and thought it was so well done. I have a teenage daughter who is very interested in seeing “Ricki’s Promise” (as she just viewed the trailer). I had trouble figuring out how I could get on your e-mail list, so we can know when there are screenings in our area. Please put me on your direct e-mail list for any future information about work you are doing. Thank you for these amazing films and for the support withing the adoption community.

    clearly a problem that needs to be dealt with.
