“VIBRANT HIGHLAND, COMMERCIAL LOVE” (“Love Market”)

Directed & Produced by Matt Dworzańczyk
Associate Producer: Gerald Herman
Cinematography by Hoang Chaizee
Sound Editing: Hoang Thu Thuy & William Cox
Original Musical Score by: Josh Kopeček

“It’s a story of wild & exotic love. It’s a story of tribal kings and opium trade. It’s a story of kidnapping and loss. It’s a story of sexual discovery, of spirits and magic. It’s a story of government propaganda vs. the fascinating yet harrowing reality of the people.”

Far up in Vietnam’s remote mountains, once a year, a secretive Love Market is held. Delving beyond the ambiguous myths, this unique, independently produced adventure documentary discovers a reality much more fascinating, even if painful, than the legends told.

  1. This is brilliant. One of the most informative films I have ever seen on the ethnic minority lifestyles of Vietnamese people. I love this country even more than my own in so many ways

  2. Vietnamese communist police is like North Korea minder, he only cares about the nation's reputation, not the truth, or people's well being.. Sometimes you have to look at the truth to help the people to get better lives.

  3. The real thrill and revelation in documentaries like such really lies in the fact that there are MANY.. MANY more Hmongs that are actually very.. very dark toned. Those areas they are domiciled are much difficult to access. You will find that the further you speak to these mountain people about very specific things besides marriage, or girl boy relationship, the further they will tell you about it. Or simply ask.

    We never had anyone interrupt our venture back in 2009, but I guess they are more wary of outsiders seeing certain things. There are also many large temples within those mountains.

  4. I know at one time the Hmong Christians of Orange County would have an annual Love Market in Mile Square Park of Fountain Valley, California during the Christmas holidays! Maybe still do?

  5. Very informative documentary. I feel bad about the girls being kidnapped and sold. I wish Vietnamese government would make that illegal. The life style of these people is similar to what I experience when I was young in my home country. Bless your heart for taking time to open our eyes to a culture in Vietnam.

  6. This was so nice to watch, I feel i know the people personally. so lovely. Was so touched when you bought that couple a pig and a bag of rice. So sorry the pig died. Love the honesty of your documentary You are a good man, cheers

  7. Hmoob people have once a year gatherings to celebrate life which young people take this opportunity to met and fall in love or get merry. Not love market. Love market was created and demand buy the communist government in hooping to boots tourist economy for Vietnamese just a few years ago. I am hmoob and I never heard of such love market. The hmoob spy men is a spy for the government that’s how they control my people. They use the dog to gard it’s owner.

  8. i know 100 % what your translator is speaking because she's speaking in a white dialect hmong.. i'm also a white hmong from laos raised in the US since i was very young… this is quite weird and unfamiliar to the hmong from laos… we don't do this kind of thing, like going to the love market to rekindle to love you've lost oran old flame… to seek out love from a old flame or lovers is forbidden in my culture from laos, but i guess the hmong from vietnam is a little more open to this love marrket..

    my people from laos, if they caught a man hitting on his wife, he'll be reprimanded and fine an amount of 1choj(1 silver bar) equal to $100 US back then, even beaten as well… sleeping with your ex lover or old flame, someone else wife is a major taboo in my culture .

  9. You may not known, but you've discovered a language that only 300,000 people left on earth speak n not written, Hmong American will lose the native tongue in the next 50 years, Im happy my language will be preserved that 2,000 years of separation found its way spoken in these small communities forever…

  10. Very well made. Thanks. There is a museum about the different ethnic groups in Hanoi, which is quite well done as well. Nonetheless the 2020 government targets will be postponed ..

  11. 24:47 -"After that we were so poor".. And i must say, instead of poor: PURE. These people are perhaps the purest
    among the nearly 8 billion. They are brave and beautiful, facing life with clean hands and soul.
    May they enjoy life, realize that they are real heroes. Wish humanity could follow their way, and rescue itself
    from the loop of being an abused data in a greedy digital/global/non human machine that went out of
    control. -Yes, some parts of that evil machine could help to avoid these pure souls of losing two children
    and animals. Must admit. But all the rest, their way is the right way. Wish them beautiful miracles..
    And thanks for Etherium Sky Films&Media for this very important piece of art..

  12. He is talking about the cow not buffalo your translator doesn't understand Hmong much so he gave you the wrong words. I am white hmong living in the United States of America, I followed your youtube channel most the time.
