Screen Asia: aka DAN – A Korean Adoptee Documentary
Los Angeles-based rapper and Korean American adoptee Dan Matthews began searching for his birth parents in 2013. What he found changed his life. This fun, crowd-pleasing documentary explores Matthews’ emotional reconnection with his biological family and heritage in South Korea.
Dan will discuss his journey with the audience after the screening. The next day (October 18), in partnership with Korean American Society of Houston, he performs live at Houston’s annual Korean Festival at Discovery Green.
DANakaDAN (Dan Matthews) is popular in the Asian American YouTube scene, not only as a rapper, but also as a producer for International Secret Agents—a production company owned by Wong Fu Productions and Far East Movement. He was raised in the small town of Camarillo (CA) with his parents and sister Jamie (also adopted).
