DC289512Documentary

ツヨシ君に伝えたい フィリピン花嫁たちは今 [YTS]

|Length : 26min. |Year : 1995

With fewer Japanese women wanting to live on a farm, Japanese farmers are looking overseas for brides. Mathilde, for example, married a man from Ohkura-mura in Yamagata and now has three children. Her oldest child Tsuyoshi has just started to attend school and is beginning to realize the social implications of having a mother from another country. This program raises important questions about the need to reevaluate traditional values in terms of contemporary needs.
