Blind Date

synopsis

Every year in China millions of youth leave their villages for greater opportunities in the city. Yet, despite quickly adopting to life in the city, many still obey the strict customs that govern the villages they grew up in, especially when it comes to marriage.

Chun, who’s been living in the Southern Chinese Metropolis of Guangzhou, has finally succumbed to the ancient tradition of blind dating – a process in which you’re given 15 minutes to choose a husband or wife – and is just weeks away from her wedding.

Contrasting China’s urban and rural settings, we follow her as she prepares to say goodbye to her life in the city and return home for a wedding she does not want to have.
