This video is about the Sen family. The Sens are a modern Chinese family living in Johannesburg who understand Chinese tradition in three very distinct ways. Dad, Teddy Sen, is a traditionalist who believes that tradition is something his family should hold onto and make an effort to practise. In contrast, mom Joy Sen is a modernist. She doesn’t see it as necessary to follow Chinese tradition. Their daughter Nicole Sen is caught between these two worlds and has her own ideas about traditions. In this video we meet them and see how they find common ground regardless of their individual beliefs.
This video is in three parts.

Part One: In this video we meet the family and find out what each of them thinks of tradition.
Part Two: A Q&A session with the Sen family. We ask them the same questions and compare their different responses.
Part Three: The rest of the Sen family joins us and talk about the possibility of young Nicole marrying a Chinese boy.
