East Asian Film Series
‘Affective Media and Intimate Geography: Queer Chinese Representations on Transnational Screens’
Film Screenings and Conversations with Filmmakers
(organised in collaboration with Nottingham Lakeside Arts for Chinese New Year and LGBT History Month 2019)
Time: 6 and 7 February 2019
Place: The Djanogly Theatre, Nottingham Lakeside Arts
What is queer? How are Chinese queer identities and experiences represented on transnational screens? How do contemporary queer filmmakers negotiate national belonging, transnational migration, diasporic experience and everyday life? What is the role of affect in mediating queer experiences?
This two 0.5-day event features screenings of four films on Chinese queer identities, in tandem with public conversations and Q&As with the directors of these films. These screenings and conversations will shed light on critical issues including sexuality, identity, transnationalism, ‘pink economy’, and queer everyday life in China, the UK and Europe. These events will be attended by the filmmakers, all of whom are currently based in the UK and Europe.
Free event, but registration via Lakeside is required
