Medalia Productions’ and Shosh Productions’ LEFTOVER WOMEN wins big at Docaviv International Documentary Film Festival
‘Leftover Women’, or sheng nu, is how the Chinese government describes educated, cosmopolitan women who are not married and settled by the time they reach their mid-twenties. Through marriage markets, matchmakers, and government-sponsored dating events, LEFTOVER WOMEN follows three hopeful singles who, under immense pressure, are determined to find love on their own terms.
The film, which premiered at Tribeca earlier this year, just took home the prizes of ‘Best Director’ and ‘Best Editing’ last night at Tel Aviv’s Docaviv International Documentary Film Festival. The award for ‘Best Director’ was awarded to directors Shosh Shlam and Hilla Medalia, while ‘Best Editing’ went to editor Joelle Alexis.
