Em Baker, a Melbourne based film-maker, was totally opposed to marriage. Until, she fell in love.

Her new documentary I am No Bird follows four very different women from across the world as they prepare for their weddings, and delves into a deeper understanding of culture, sexuality, faith and personal identity.
