Love and Other Commodities

Here is the trailer for my short documentary ‘Love and Other Commodities’
This film explores the contradictory connotations of the term ‘mail-order bride’ by depicting interviews with Asian-Australian couples through live action/ animation hybrid. I made this film in my Honours year during my Bachelor of animation degree.
Thanks to the cast and interviewees who made this film possible – Helga, Sue, John, Edelisa, Rose, Colin, Trevor and Karen. Thank you especially to Best Boy James Warr.
