Singled [Out] + Q&A w/ Directors Mariona Guiu and Ariadna Relea

Singled Out

Two years after its European release, the acclaimed documentary Singled [Out] is finally coming to the United States on International Women’s Day!

The film tells the story of five single, educated women in four corners of the world – Jules in Melbourne, Australia; Manu in Barcelona, Spain; Shu and Yang in Shanghai, China and Melek in Istambul, Turkey – who all travel solo in a world where pairing up is the norm. Together with the voices of well-known experts in the areas of sociology, law and demography, the film unveils the challenges of single women around the world in the era of choice.

The documentary was released in 2017, and has been travelling the world, showing in Australia, Poland, Spain, Turkey, Japan and Israel.  Join us for the film’s OC Premiere, followed by a Q&A with directors Mariona Guiu and Ariadna Relea!



“This is a curious, entertaining, and intriguing documentary that proposes a lot of questions and raises a lot of concepts about what it means to be a single woman over thirty in the world today.” – Andrew F Peirce, The Curb

“Watching this film is a cathartic, healing and empowering experience. It is one of those films that puts a name to a problem that has been festering and lurking unacknowledged in the background.” – Stephanie Griffin, Right Now Australia

“Shot in Australia, China, Turkey and Spain, the film is an intimate and personal four-year journey exploring what it means to be a single woman in a time of increasing independence and choice.” – Ashleigh Austen, WHIMN
