Nguyen Kim Hong, a Vietnamese woman, thought she was pursuing happiness when she moved to Taiwan for marriage. After years of domestic abuse, she is forced to divorce and raise her daughter on her own. Thanks to her hard work to overcome the language and cultural barrier, she rebuilds her life and becomes a filmmaker, documenting four other women with similar experiences of immigration and failed marriage. Overcoming the cultural and language barrier, Kim-Hong becomes a filmmaker and documents stories of four other women with very similar experiences of immigration and failed marriage. Forging a close connection with the women, Kim-Hong presents a touching and powerful story offering a unique entry point to some of Taiwanese society’s most pressing issues. Out/Marriage is a milestone because it is the first Taiwanese documentary filmed from the perspective of a female immigrant.

失婚記

為了找尋自己的幸福,阮金紅遠渡重洋從越南嫁到了台灣,卻因家暴夢碎失婚。在語言與文化極為陌生的異鄉,她以過人毅力獨力扶養女兒,並拿起攝影機,記錄身邊與自己有著相似經歷的四名新移民姐妹,她們在自願與非自願情況下,陸續走上失婚道路。當國籍身份的尷尬、生活的困頓與小孩扶養、教養等種種問題迎面而來,她們是否能迎來雨過天晴的一天?而幸福,又在何方?

阮金紅在失婚後開始接觸紀錄片,記錄在台灣結識的新移民朋友失婚後的故事。由於相似的身份與遭遇,導演與被攝者更能彼此交心,而鏡頭前女性集體關懷與親人間的互相羈絆,使影片情感更加真摯動人。導演透過攝影機扭轉自己在性別與身份上的弱勢,回看切身相關的台灣社會問題,使本片成為台灣影史首部新移民女性自我發聲之紀錄片,極具時代意義。(資料出處:臺灣國家電影中心工具箱)
