故事梗概

《怪美》关注的是起源于欧美的变装皇后文化。两名同性恋者,主要通过变装的方式,在中国珠海的校园、乡村和剧院里行走。纪录片通过与游客的碰撞和交流,观察和记录了中国人对变装皇后文化的反应和态度,记录了两位体验者的感受。

导演介绍

张季维,北京师范大学珠海分校电影学专业的大四在读学生。在大学的学习生活中,他拍摄了许多微电影并担任导演、编剧和演员的职务。他设计的主题大多是LGBT题材及酷儿电影。《怪美》是其纪录片拍摄的处女作。

导演阐述

这次创作,我们大胆地选择了让主创团队的成员成为被拍摄对象,也就是我和制片人,主动地通过变装的方式与游客互动。同性恋的变装文化多数在酒吧进行,我们希望通过将变装搬到阳光之下,观察游客的反应。我们也希望借由这部作品,让观众思考美的多元性,美的各种可能。

Synopsis

BEAUTY IN UGLINESS focuses on the drag culture originated from Europe and America. Two homosexuals walk through the campus, countryside and theater in Zhuhai, China mainly within full drag looks. Through collision and communication with tourists, the documentary observes and records the reaction and attitude of Chinese people to drag culture, and records the feelings of the two participants.

Director Biography

Jiwei Zhang, a senior at Beijing Normal University Zhuhai,majoring in film studies. During his life in the university, he has made many short films and served as director, screenwriter and actor. Most of his topics focus on LGBT and queer films.

Beauty In Ugliness is his first time making a documentary.

Director’s Statement

In this film, we boldly chose to let the members of our team become the subjects, that is, the producer and me, actively interact with tourists through cross dressing. Drag culture is mostly performing inside of LGBT bars. We hope to observe the reaction of the tourists by showing drag culture in the public. We also hope through this film that audiences can think about the diversity of beauty and various possibilities of beauty.
