Lahu Girls Expectations: An Anthropological Documentation Film

This is a documentary film about a five-year anthropological case study of Lahu girls from a minority community in southwestern China. It records the school life of 45 Lahu girls who came from the Lahu community along the Lancang/Mekong River bordering the Sino-Burmese border. Taking advantage of a school education, these girls tried to enter a 21st century globalized industrial society from a matriarchic society. Would they succeed? How should state school education handle the relationship between the states agenda and ethnic nationalism in a multilingual society? Dr. Teng examines these issues in the 45-minute documentary which will be followed by a discussion. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 23, 2013
