Vietnamese woman NGUYEN Kim Hong moved to Taiwan in pursuit of happiness and a cross-cultural marriage. However, she was forced to divorce her husband after years of physical abuse. In spite of language and cultural barriers, NGUYEN raised her daughter on her own and began to document four other immigrant women who shared a similar fate, capturing the daunting challenges as they each tried to stand on their own feet as a migrant or a single mother.
After her divorce, NGUYEN began to film the stories of her immigrant friends. The shared identities and experiences helped her better connect with her subjects, and the female bonding and family connections make the film more emotionally stirring. What were once the director’s disadvantages in gender and national identity become a unique entry point in dissecting many of Taiwan’s social issues. Out/Marriage became a milestone as the first Taiwanese documentary filmed from the perspective of a new female immigrant.
