AJ and Natalie are an English Chinese intercultural couple who met on the streets of Beijing. This film explores their unique relationship and has a touching ending as Natalie meets AJ's parents during Chinese New Years. Currently AJ and Natalie live and work in Sweden.
"News on TV can be pretty depressing, with stories of ethnic conflict and ongoing warfare. Thankfully, stories about cross-cultural relationships, such as AJ’s and Natalie’s, give us hope for humanity. This mini-documentary shows two people from totally different worlds, defying the odds for the sake of love." absolutelyfobulous.com
Many thanks to AJ and Natalie for giving their short time in Beijing, braving the winter cold, and special thanks to AJ's parents who truly gave us words to remember.
Part of a series of 10 short documentary films about 10 real-life European-Chinese couples that we concepted and produced for the European Union to China.
The Bus: A Journey Up North, is a story of some good friends doing what they do best; having fun, adventuring, and sending it on mountain bikes and kayaks. With the idea to run the bus to be more economical as well as environmentally friendly, the friends converted the school bus to run off waste vegetable oil. The trip turns out to be nothing short of the trip of a lifetime.
