My Fair Wedding
Directed by Jang Hee-sun
Only a few nuptials are ever legitimately worthy of large public spectacle. Prince William and Kate Middleton, please make room for Gwang-Soo and Dave. Film director Gwang-Soo and producer Dave have been romantically involved for about nine years and have 19 years between them in age. In an intimate and candid documentary shot by Jang Hee-sun, we follow Gwang-Soo and Dave as they plan their landmark wedding, the first same-sex marriage performed in South Korea. However, with tradition and conservatism broken, gay marriage opponents make their displeasure heard loud and clear before and during the grooms’ special day.
A light-hearted love story with strong undertones about marriage equality, MY FAIR WEDDING offers a first-hand account on overcoming adversity and how a milestone event goes beyond just one couple. Sometimes humorous and always engaging, this film is an eye-opener on societal inequity and cultural taboo as well as a jubilant celebration of love, coming out, and living freely and fiercely.
