China Love

Sponsored by Victoria Grostick & Susan Stern-Pearl
California Premiere 

Just over 40 years ago, marriage in China was arranged by the state. Romantic love was seen as a capitalist concept and was simply not allowed. Wedding photography (if there was any) consisted of one black and white passport photo of the couple (dressed in Mao-style outfits) as proof of the marriage. Now, China has fallen in love with love and its exploding wedding industry is worth $80 billion! Pre-wedding photography is one of the most significant and curious new fads. From underwater shoots to international backdrops, the possibilities are unlimited for soon-to-be, and long-wed couples. 86 min. Australia
