Sham Marriage

Anna Knappe

Sham marriage usually refers to marriages in which the intent of the marriage is not to live together or to start a family but to circumvent the immigration regulations. The film Sham Marriage looks at multicultural relationships through the artists’ own relationship, and by exploring representations of love through wedding-related imagery.
