A HUSBAND IN PARIS (Serbia, 2007)

A HUSBAND IN PARIS is a playful commentary on the marriages of convenience that many women from the former East Bloc enter into in order to get to the rich West. Katarina Radovic plays one of these women, seeking a husband in Paris, the 'city of her dreams'. She asks random men on the street if they would want to marry her. After getting acquainted briefly the men were photographed on the spot with her. The photos are intended to suggest that they are a happily married couple. The speed with which the picture is made symbolises the unabashed haste that Eastern European women have in arranging such marriages. It also touches on the apparent unconcern with which such opportunistic partners regard the cultural differences that are generally involved in such marriages.
