导演阐述

记录女性的性与欲望是本导演的创作意图。由于女性的声音、经历、欲望经常被主流媒体所遮蔽、忽略;女性往往也不自觉的轻视自身的欲望、理想、生活经历,而影像创作正是可以帮助女性表达自己的欲望,珍视个人的需求和经验。通过记录女性以及其他被忽视的人群,如性工作者、残障人士、性受歧视者,艾滋病毒感染者的生活故事、欲望需求,本导演希望被压迫的欲望得以表达。

Director Biography

Xiaopei He holds a Ph.D. degree in cultural studies and is an independent director. His works include: Our Marriages: Lesbians Marry Gay Men in China (42 min) which tells the story of four lesbian women’s marriage of convenience with gay men; The Lucky One (36 min) which shows female AIDS patients tell their personal stories of desire; Gay Cats (3 min), a sex story of two gay cats; Polyamorous Family (26 min), a multiracial, multinational, multigender family story; Love You Too (16 min) which documents the art project of discussing sexual desire with intellectually challenged people; Yvo and Chrissy (64 min), a story of two Britons giving up their inheritance as well as their birth gender and looking for an alternative life; Playmates (46 min) shows the childhood of two boys—one in rural Sichuan and the other in England—from the age of 2 to 10 and observes how they understand differences in class, race, nationality, sex, and gender; Happily Ever After (37 min) which revisits the four lesbian women in Our Marriages in northeast China to see how they build a queer family with their lesbian partner, gay husband, and the parents of two sides after their marriage of convenience. These innovative and deliberate family forms suggest a reflection on the mainstream concept of the family.

Director’s Statement

Documenting women’s sexuality and desire is my creative intention. Women’s voices, experiences, and desires are often obscured and ignored by the mainstream media, and women themselves often unconsciously belittle their desires, ideals, and life experiences. It is precisely visual creation that can help women express their desires and cherish their personal needs and experiences. By documenting the stories, desires, and needs of women and other marginalized groups such as sex workers, people with disability, sexually discriminated persons, and people with HIV, the director’s desire is to express what is repressed.
