Film Screening:

 

My 17 Gay Friends

2014 | 25 min | Moxie Peng

My 17 Gay Friends is an experimental romantic comedy that explores the interconnected web of relationships in Beijing’s gay community that surrounds an unseen narrator. It also pokes fun at stereotypes and labels that often cut across the LGBT community such as femininity and masculinity in the gay community and how it affects our perceptions of gay people and categorizes people into distinct groups.

 

Wicked Game

2014 | 5 min |  Ding Yi

This microfilm only cost two days to produce, including writing, shooting and editing. Which is also a test, to test not let the passions of create fade out by the film’s industrialization. And it’s only a tiny tiny lead for a gay’s fake marriage issue in China of course.

 

Works from Queer University

Queer University Documentary Training Camp(“Queer University”) is a seven-day program for people who work and/or volunteer in sexual minority communities. Inthe interactive and practice-oriented Queer University course, students are trained in documentary filmmaking, editing, production and distribution, and are empowered to use the skills they acquire to record their own community stories and enhance their advocacy activities. Each year, Queer University awards its most accomplished students with year-long material support and creative guidance, thus helping them in directing and producing their own full-length documentary.

A Straight Journey: Days and Nights in Their Kingdom

2015 | 23 min |  Masa Mojo

This is a spontaneous project. In the beginning MasaMojo planned to shoot some portray photographs for about 10 gay people. Because they need to talk to these people, eventually they finished a documentary after visiting 11 cities in China. They want to tell a story about individuals, instead of a group, to share the love and fear within everyone. They edited the film in a storyline of one person, from childhood, adolescence, young love, coming out, to family, marriage, wives, children and getting old. By that, they are trying to tell a sincere story of China’s gay people and to move the Chinese people in a further way.
