Media Stockade is a fine documentary company which focuses on social issues without allowing preaching to take over true filmmaking. China Love is a hoot in the cinema.
It explores the Chinese pre-wedding photography industry by following several couples in Shanghai. It may look to us like a Real Housewives version of Crazy Rich Asians, but marriage in that culture is both hugely loaded and a symbol of how far families have come since the Cultural Revolution. The industry is worth over $80b/year and individual photoshoots can cost $500,000.
