霧之雛 Children of the Mist

1h 33m 紀錄片競賽 Documentary Competition 2021


Set in the north of her homeland, Vietnam, Ha Le Diem’s compelling debut, which won the Best Directing award at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, depicts the controversial tradition of “bride-napping” in rural villages. At the centre of Diem’s film is the conflicted life of Di, a 12-year-old Hmong girl, torn between deep-rooted customs of adolescent marriage and the modern freedoms presented to her via social media. On the brink of an underage marriage, Di explores her sense of self and independent notion of womanhood.
