Dahuas Wedding

In rural China, out-migration and disparity has profound
impacts on kinship practices. Based on an ethnographic field research
conducted in 2005-2006 on migration and industrialization, this
project investigates changing notions of love, affection, sexuality,
and marriage among young Chinese villagers by providing a documentary
account of  a uxorilocal wedding between a well-off Yi bride and a
poor Han groom in Panzhihua, P.R. China. About 28 hours of video
footage were collected during the filed study from which a final 40
minute film will be made.
