故事梗概

灵魂出俏(She Takes Me Over)是迈克尔·辛纳拉尔(Michael Cignarale)收录于其迷你专辑《肆意高潮》(Operatic Orgasm)内出道曲的MV。 迈克尔是上海地下酷儿派对平台美杜莎的创始人。美杜莎现已成为上海变装和酷儿音乐俱乐部中最重要平台之一。

导演介绍

马熊(Matthew Baren)是一位电影制作人和酷儿社活动组织者,现居住于上海。他执导的作品包括《司机》(2017)和《奢华》(2018)。

导演阐述

灵魂出俏(She Takes Me Over)是对女性能量的颂扬,它是酷儿赋权模式的一种,植根于酷儿浩室音乐(House Music)的表达方式和血统。这首歌有趣性感,坎普且充满力量。在制作此MV的时候,我想要捕捉到这种精髓,将它稳稳地定位在上海的地下酷儿文化场景中。从镜头前的变装皇后们到摄制组的酷儿们,几乎每一位参与了视频制作的人都得以在这一场景中安家。

Synopsis

She Takes Me Over‘ is the music video of debut track from the EP ‘Operatic Orgasm‘ by Michael Cignarale. Michael is the founder of Medusa, an underground queer party that has become one of the most important community platforms for drag and queer club music in Shanghai.

Director Biography

Matthew Baren is a filmmaker and queer community organiser based in Shanghai. His work as director includes The Driver (2017) and Extravaganza (2018).

Director’s Statement

The song ‘She takes Me Over‘ is a celebration of femme energy as a mode of queer empowerment, rooted in the language and lineage of queer house music.

It’s fun and sexy, camp and powerful. In making this music video, I wanted to capture that essence, whilst situating it firmly in Shanghai’s underground queer culture scene. Almost everyone who worked on the video makes their home in that scene, from the kweens in front of the camera to the kweers who were on the crew.

Synopsis

Every day at 3pm Jessica starts his make-up to be ready for his performance at 7:30. He does not perform in a bar or in a theater but at home facing his mobile phone. He is an online professional Drag Queen. Each day of the week he gets online to perform and to receive “gifts” from his fans. Although he enjoys being a Drag Queen, he not only has to prove his talents and skills but also to fight against prejudices and discrimination. Even if the space for drag shows in China is constrained, he is always looking for opportunities to perform in front of live audiences.

Director Biography

Xiaogang Wei was born and raised in Xinjiang, China. He was trained as an actor at the drama department of the Xinjiang Arts Institute in Urumqi and at the Shanghai Drama Academy. Having a passion for community work and a drive to contribute to social change, Xiaogang has continually searched for meaningful ways to share his drama skills with others and to use them in socially relevant ways.

In 2005 he started to engage himself on the production side of various films and other productions benefiting different social movements in China. In 2007, he founded the LGBT webcast “Queer Comrades”, for which he hosted and directed more than 400 videos and reached over 50 million viewers/times. Until 2019, he was the executive director of the NGO Beijing Gender. Founded in 2002, it was the first Chinese NGO to focus on issues of gender, sexuality and sexual health, thus fulfilling a pioneering role in Chinese society. Together with the Beijing Gender, he launched a series of groundbreaking events in China, including Queer University, the China AIDS Walk, the China Rainbow Awards, the China LGBTI Conference and All Gender Toilet Program.

In 2013 he got the Vanguard Awards from LA LGBT Center for his contribution to the LGBTI movement in China.

Director’s Statement

So far, most of my work and life have been growing up with issues of sexuality and gender, civil society and human rights. Most of my films were about to raise the visibility of LGBTI people in China, to speak out, and asking for equal rights. Now I have left my full-time NGO job and become a freelancer, because I am not an film academic, and I cannot completely get rid of the way of thinking of a activist. So my film still like focus on people and stories that are rarely seen, those who have struggled, those who are brave to live for themselves, those who make me feel that my life is too monotonous.
