SBS (a producer, a translator, and a cameraman) came knocking right on time this evening, bringing a little potted orchid with them.
Fortunately, I was coherent. Amazingly, they shot footage the entire time – all 3 1/2 hours of it. I don’t envy whoever their editor is! The documentary they’re filming will air on June 13th, at 11 pm. It’s channel 5 or 6, depending on which company you purchase your t.v. from.
They were extremely thorough, and listened to all of my opinions. It sounds like they are going to investigate my case a little more for me as well. Of course they can’t include 3+ hours of me opining about international adoption, but they have plenty of sound bites to glean from, as well as a glimpse into what it is like to be an alien in your own country. Twice. I really feel honored to be given this opportunity.
Thanks, Jane! With your activist notoriety and my big mouth, maybe we can make real change here.
