In this article, I inquire about the kind of new knowledge audiovisual insights could provide in the field of International Adoption studies, and how these outcomes could give rise to new ways of approaching that subject. In doing so, I tackle the centrality of cultural imaginaries in International Adoption and the prolificacy of audiovisual research in anthropology to gain a better understanding. Hence, I consider adoptive itineraries as culturally situated contexts that render folk ideologies visible and may become foundational imaginaries that demand the encompassment of academic research with a more general ethnographic comprehension of such cultural representations and ideologies.
