From the organizer:
Join us on Saturday evening, to discover the new documentary project of the movie director Matt Dworzańczyk:
“VIBRAND HIGHLAND, COMMERCIAL LOVE”
With the presence of the movie director!
‘Vibrant Highland, Commercial Love’ tells stories of exotic love, of tribal kings and opium trade, of kidnappings (trafficking) for the Chinese sex trade; it deals with homosexuality among Vietnam’s ethnic minorities. It talks about political reeducation, about spirits and magic. All those stories are intertwined in an energetic narrative centering around the myth and conspiracy of the secretive Love Market, a unique event during which ethnic minority couples supposedly break away from their families seeking to reconnect with their old lovers.
The film had its world premiere at The World’s Independent Film Festival in San Francisco, USA, where it is also recognized as BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director Matt Dworzanczyk.
