scheda film], will have its world premiere at the 47th International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), screening in the Bright Future Competition on 28, 29 and 31 January, and 2 and 3 February. After this, the film will travel all the way up to the 41st Göteborg Film Festival (26 January-5 February), where it will take part in the Nordic Competition, the main competitive section of the gathering, where it will vie for the Dragon Award.
The film tells the story of two Danish-Korean adoptees who return for the first time to the country they were once born in. Confronted with the spirit of their motherland and the personal stories of the fellow adoptees they meet in the city of Seoul, Karoline and Thomas are hurled into an emotionally disorientating journey that forces both of them to question and face their own destiny and identity. Hybrid film The Return is partially based on director Malene Choi's personal experience as well as stories shared by adoptees that Malene encountered in Seoul while shooting the movie.
Produced by Julie Friis Walenciak and Julie Rix Bomholt for Walenciak Film and Katja Adomeit for Adomeit Film, with support from the Danish Film Institute, the film is sold internationally by Pluto Film.
