We’ve curated a number of shorts that explore LGBT life through the Asian lens. This was achieved with help from notable gay filmmaker, writer and activist Fan Popo. Popo directs the China Queer Film Festival Tour, which has travelled to over 20 major cities in China since 2008. He has also participated in international exchanges in Taipei, Copenhagen and Los Angeles amongst other places.

Here’s the bill:

Film Title: I Don’t Care

Duration: 10mins

Director: Inoue Kana

Cinematographer:寺澤知花 Terasawa Chika

Language: Japanese (EN / CN Subtitles)

Synopsis:

One day, Akira Kawabata was told how Higurashi feels about Akira. Akira, who has not had any relationship with anyone ever, accepted Higurashi’s love very easily. However, Akira soon finds Higurashi is a boy, not a girl. This film is about ‘FtX’ and intersex.

Film Title: To Live Invisibly

Duration: 49 mins

Director: Huang,Chiung-Wei / Mochiwhite

Language: Chinese (EN / CN Subtitles)

Synopsis:

In this film, iron rabbit is a metaphor for bisexuals’ situation. What looks similar to rabbit is not absolutely a rabbit. When a heterosexual couple occurs, people often consider them normal heterosexuals. Also, when two homosexuals get together, people would simply think of them as homosexuals. In such instinctive concept, which is people are either homo or hetero, bisexuals seem to fade out.
The film is a real reflection of the living conditions of bisexuals in Taiwan. We hope through the film, people can understand more about bisexuals.

Film Title: The Postcard

Thailand

Duration: 15mins

Language: Korean (EN Subtitles)

Synopsis:

A post office clerk mistakenly thinks that a customer is trying to get her attention by writingopen love letters on postcards he sends out. However, although he is trying to catch someone’s attention with these missives, they are actually meant for another postal worker.

Film Title: Draft Day

Director: Josh Kim

Language: Thai (EN/Subtitles)

In Thailand, all males turning 21 must participate in the military draft lottery. Drawing a black card grants exemption. Drawing a red card results in two years of military service. DRAFT DAY follows two girls, who were born as males, as they participate in the drafting process.

Film Title: The Taste

Duration: 11mins

Director: Zhu Cheng (朱程)

Language: Mandarin (EN / CN Subtitles)

Production Company:Academy of Film, Hong Kong Baptist University

A man with an uncommon habit falls in love, but he mustn’t let his lover find out his dark secret. Once revealed, he would probably lose everything. In this dilemma, what choice will he make?

Film Title: Some Sort of Loneliness

Director:  Jenny Wu Man

THIS EVENT IS PART OF ASIAN CINEMA WEEK In 2014 we warmly welcome back Asian Cinema Week into the JUE | Film program. In 2013 Asian Cinema Week was a bold call to cinematic arms. Including feature films, documentaries and shorts from all over Asia (alongside live music, panels and various other interactive events), the inaugural edition carved out a space where local filmmakers and fans alike could collide, share ideas and develop their works. Asian Cinema Week is an outstanding platform for exposing the best of Asian underground cinema.
