About this submission
To witness a wedding is to witness society in microcosm. "Double Happiness" is a "coming-of-age" wedding drama. It takes us to the wedding of a Chinese couple whose parents collapse into their most childish selves, turning a self-important ritual into a chaotic fantasy.
In showcasing the adults in this film as the children they are inside, my intention is not to make a mockery of marriage, but to invite critical examination of the wedding ritual itself, the society that shaped it, and the insecure souls who still revel in it in my homeland today.
