Dahuas Wedding, Change in Yishala

This project investigates changing notions of love,
affection, sexuality, and changing marriage pratice 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. Based on an ethnographic
field research conducted in 2005-2006 on migration and
industrialization, about 28 hours of video
footage were collected, from which a final 40
minute or so film will be made.
