Visitors of the Night

For this 1998 video documentary, Belgian ethnographer An van Dienderen traveled to southwest China to study the Mosuo, a matrilineal tribe whose women practice polyandry (taking multiple male partners). Yet van Dienderen discovers that the Mosuo's promiscuous image is being exploited by a tourism industry that coaches the tribesmen and imports non-Mosuo women to pose as natives—which, as she readily admits, implicates her as well. 34 min.
