Directed by He Xiaopei and Yuan Yuan (China, 2013), Our Marriage is an exploration of the lives of four lesbians who decided to marry gay men in order to secretly pursue their relationships with their girlfriends, while at the same time fulfilling their family’s deep-seated desire that their daughter get married and form a family with her husband. How do contract marriages work, how do people negotiate the terms of marriage and how do they live lives as lesbians in contemporary Chinese culture?
