About this event

Heartbound, 2018, 90 min. By Janus Metz and Sine Plambech

In a small, wind-swept fishing community on the Northern coast of Denmark live 926 Thai-women. 25 years ago there were none. Heartbound is a unique study of this unprecedented network of Thai/Danish marriages. Shot over ten years, it follows four couples and their children, documenting how their lives develop alongside the economic and emotional bonds that tie them together. A fascinating exploration of globalization set on the intimate stage of marriage and family.
