The January FCCNE/CCI-Boston Meetup for Adoptees 18+ is here!


FCCNE-CCI-Boston Meet Ups are casual events planned by and for Chinese adoptees who are 18 or older in the Boston area.

Join us in January for a screening of Twinsters, a 2015 documentary film which covers the true-life story of identical twin sisters from Korea who were separated at birth and adopted to different corners of the world. After discovering each other on-line as adults, they finally meet in person, build a relationship and explore aspects of their background together. Directed by half of the sibling duo, actor Samantha Futerman, Twinsters is a creative, endearingly funny, and fresh account of family, adoption, and reunion.

This is planned as the first in a film series to bring together Boston area Chinese adoptees for screenings of films relevant to our adoption community and accompanying discussions on adoption, identity, race, family, and more. Join us on these cold winter days, snuggle in with hot chocolate, popcorn, and a movie, and enjoy good company, stimulating discussion, and the warmth of community.


***Registration is free but you MUST pre-register in order to attend this event. There is a suggested donation of $5-$10 on a sliding scale, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
