  • Project Details
    Casting a student short drama. "The Red Veil" follows Lan, a young woman with mental conditions in rural China, as she endures a forced, loveless marriage with a stranger orchestrated by her parents. Lan's mother, Mei, posts an advertisement video online seeking a husband for Lan, leading to Lan’s matchmaking with Peng. After negotiating the huge amount of bride price with Peng, Mei marries her daughter off to him. Lan struggles with abuse and the harsh realities of her marriage, leading to Lan's breaking point, a moment of rebellion and escape. Lan’s failed attempt to flee back to her parents' home, bearing the scars of her ordeal, both physically and emotionally, suggests a cycle of hardship and deep-rooted sexism in rural China.
