"FAMILY2" WITH A SPECIAL MENTION
The winners of this year's edition of the Alcine festival have been announced. One of the awarded films is the documentary by Yifan Sun. The film received a Special Mention.
Alcine is one of the most important and oldest Spanish short film festivals. The core of the program are two main competitions - Spanish and European, as well as many accompanying sections.
The heroine of the distinguished documentary "Family2" is Lola. The girl was born in China, Ningdu County. She was the third child of her parents. Shortly after birth, she was taken from the family home by a midwife who was to look after the family. Her parents couldn't keep Lola with them. It was related to the one-child policy. She was soon adopted by a Belgian family who surrounded her with love and support. Lola had dreamed of meeting her biological parents for years, but had no idea who they were or how she could find them. In the summer of 2018, her dream finally comes true.
