MANTA RAY

ONE CHILD NATION

THE THIRD WIFE

A Thai fisherman finds a Rohingya man washed up and nurses him back to health, integrating him into his village. A visually rich response to the refugee crises.

How the one child policy impacted a generation is intimately told from many perspectives: the filmmaker’s family, those who enforced the policy and those who traded abandoned babies.

In 19th century Vietnam, 14-year-old May arrives by boat to become the third wife of a wealthy land-owner’s son. An evocative and beautifully realised work.
