Dr Hongwei Bao will be introducing East Palace, West Palace at Queer East Film Festival which takes place 17 - 22 November at Broadway Cinema. 

After a night raid in a Beijing park, A-Lan, a young gay writer is held by police and questioned. Recollecting his tumultuous childhood, sexual experiences, and search for love, A-Lan forms a complicated and masochistic bond with the officer subjecting him to interrogation. Hailed as one of the first films from mainland China to dramatise gay experience, East Palace, West Palace is a controversial yet brilliantly shot drama, featuring exceptional performances from Si Han and Hu Jun.
