Three Weddings and a Divorce
"Three Weddings and a Divorce" is a portrait of three women all living in Beijing. Grandmother Wang - with bound "Lily-feet", 63-year-old Liu Xiaobing - whose life was heavily affected by the Culture Revolution, and 34-year-old successful business woman Xie Rui. Together, they can account for the last hundred years of Beijing's history. Their life stories illustrate the incredible change the role of women has undergone in Chinese society. It tells of how the custom of feet-binding was thrown out and condemned by revolutionary slogans that projected model female workers to the fore, but the idea of the good-natured communist woman now seems distant, having been replaced by the high stilettos of 'modern society'.
Beijing Postcards has been following the lives of these women for four plus years. During this period a great deal has changed, not least that “Three Weddings and a Divorce” has now become “Four Weddings and a Divorce”!
