How did you choose your life partner? Did someone else choose him or her for you? Did family or friends play a major role in the choice? If you had the opportunity do it all over again would you do it any differently this time? Why and how?
Documentary filmmaker Vinod Kumar welcomes your feedback for an upcoming film examining the role and relevance of arranged marriage in contemporary times. The idea is to bring out, through narration of your own experiences in your own words, the good, the bad, the ugly, or the pros and cons, of the current ways in which parents, family, friends or members of the community may try to introduce two people who might make a good match.
You may have strong opinions on the subject and may want to use this forum as a sounding board. But please keep in mind that the idea of the film is to foster discussion by drawing on real experiences rather than serve as a forum to propagate for or against arranged marriage.
We request you to restrict relating your experience or opinion to no more than three to five minutes so that a maximum number of people can share their thoughts. This event may be videotaped, parts of which may be used for the documentary Vinod Kumar is making on this subject. If you do not consent to being a part of the documentary film, be sure to indicate that on the sign-in sheet.
If you think you have a personal experience/opinion that you may want to share or if you would like to join the crew in any capacity for the filming of this documentary, please send a brief note to firstname.lastname@example.org .
