In a tiny fishing village in northern Denmark, over 900 Thai women have married and settled. This documentary from filmmaker Janus Metz and his wife and anthropologist Sine Plambech, sets out to discover why these women crossed the world to marry, a phenomenon that started years earlier when a former sex worker married a local man. It’s an intimate and detailed portrait of society and marriage migration, focusing on four couples over ten years.

With the support of the Ministry of Culture and the Embassy of Denmark in Dublin.

Beautifully made, Heartbound unfolds over 10 years and captures the romantic vagaries of its subjects in heartbreaking detail.

Gráinne Humphreys, Festival Director
