Say I Do

Country Available: Canada, USA
Unveiling the Stories of Mail-Order Brides
Journey through the eyes of Filipino women who have met their Canadian husbands via the present-day “mail-order bride” industry. Advertisements, the internet and match making agencies combine to drive the demand for “traditional, devoted Filipino housewives” and solidify the deal. The process involves financial costs for the future husband and high emotional price tags for both. The gripping personal stories of four characters provide the dramatic spine for Say I Do.
Interwoven with personal stories are compelling interviews, discussing the business, the context of mail-order brides within Filipino immigration and the resultant need for mail-order brides to develop self awareness and self empowerment.
