Proudly Presents:


Somewhere Between

Don't miss this special screening of this award-winning documentary 


Please join Families with Children from China – North Texas for a special screening of the highly-acclaimed documentary Somewhere Between.

Director Linda Goldstein Knowlton’s (THE WORLD ACCORDING TO SESAME STREET) contemporary profile of Chinese adoptees coming of age in contemporary America is a deeply moving documentary that illustrates that even the most specific of experiences can be universally relatable. This film takes you on the intimate journey of four girls adopted from China navigating through the issues of race, gender and belonging as they all attempt to answer the uniquely human question, “Who am I?” SOMEWHERE BETWEEN lets these articulate girls tell their own stories fro m their points of view, which makes it unique among other films on international adoption. This unique perspective makes it a must-see for anyone touched by adoption, but the film also has a universal appeal because viewers—no matter their color, gender, or culture—will find themselves exploring their own sense of identity and their feelings about family and belonging as they watch the girls’ on their path to discovering who they are.

About Linda Goldstein Knowlton (Director/Producer)


Linda Goldstein Knowlton co-directed and co-produced the feature-length documentary, THE WORLD ACCORDING TO SESAME STREET. The film examines Sesame Street's international co-productions, made primarily in some of the world's political hotspots, including Kosovo, Bangladesh, and South Africa. The film made its World Premiere in competition at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival as an Official Selection in the U.S. Documentary category. The film was selected and screened at the Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto, the Seattle Film Festival, and other festivals including Boston, Dubrovnik, New Zealand, Melbourne, and Zurich. Previously, Goldstein Knowlton produced the New Zealand film WHALE RIDER (2002), directed by Niki Caro, which was the winner of the Audience Awards at Toronto, Sundance, Rotterdam, Seattle, San Francisco, and Maui film festivals. Goldstein Knowlton became involved with WHALE RIDER in 1992, a decade before its theatrical release, after reading the novella upon which the film is based. Prior to that, she initiated the development of THE SHIPPING NEWS after reading the novel in galley form in 1993, and then produced the 2001-released film, directed by Lasse Hallstrom. She made her feature-film producing debut in 1999 with both MUMFORD, written and directed by Lawrence Kasdan, and CRAZY IN ALABAMA, directed by Antonio Banderas. She is currently developing both fiction and documentary films.

Born and raised in Chicago, Goldstein Knowlton studied neuroscience at Brown University. Following college, she remained in Providence to serve the governor of Rhode Island in the Office of Intergovernmental Relations. She subsequently worked raising funds for film preservation at The American Film Institute, in Washington, D.C., and, later, in Los Angeles. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and daughter.


What the Critics Say About Somewhere Between


“As this strong, moving documentary shows, for those who came to the U.S., reconnecting to their culture and blood relatives can result in a generation of young people who feel ‘somewhere between’ Chinese and American… All have their own stories, but the common narrative in these ‘trans-racial’ kids’ lives is the strength it takes to be who you are and to flourish when identity becomes one more challenge.”
—Joe Neumaier, NY Daily News

"One needs several hearts to survive the breakage inflicted by SOMEWHERE BETWEEN, a delicately wrought, deeply felt docu-profile of four teenage girls who differ in background and aspirations, but share one life-defining factor: All are Chinese adoptees, and all are trying to come to terms with that fact as they navigate the already perilous waters of American adolescence. As the film states, 80,000 children from China have been adopted in the United States since 1989. Considering Knowlton's sublime subjects and sensitive execution, despite a certain vagueness of context, the docu could have widespread appeal..."
 —John Anderson, Variety

"SOMEWHERE BETWEEN is poignant and intimate, allowing the audience to walk in others' shoes and better understand issues that are seemingly skin-deep, but that go to the core of identity..."
SOMEWHERE BETWEEN is a documentary that asks a very simple-sounding, but ultimately extremely complex question: 'Who am I?'"
— Sophia Lee, Los Angeles Times

“Numerous scenes … radiate with raw, complex emotions triggered by topics of race, identity, and belonging rarely acknowledged head-on in the movies.”
—Kalvin Henley, Slant Magazine
