The Love Market
Director: Shalom Almond
A documentary, filmed over 3 years, following four young girls who sell souvenirs and search for husbands on the streets of a remote Vietnamese town. When Shalom Almond visited Sapa as a tourist, she became friends with four savvy, street smart Hmong girls dreaming of a life beyond selling souvenirs. But how will these young girls survive the leap from remote tribal culture to 21st century Asia? Over the next three years, Shalom returned to Vietnam with her camera to find out.
