导演阐述 Director Statement
As Bell Hooks wrote: “Queer not as being about who you are having sex with, though that can be a dimension of it, but queer as about being about the self that is at odds with everything around it and has to invent and create and find a place to speak and to thrive and to live”.
The people of this queer experience are often not well represented, and this is exactly what I am trying to change.
Finding the spaces, where these bodies speak, thrive and live so we might learn their lessons of endurance and perseverance and love.
