QUEER & HERE
91 Minutes

Thu, Oct 21 @ 12:00 am – Sun, Oct 31 @ 10:00 pm

A staple every BAAFF season, Queer and Here is self-expression and identity beyond orientation. Demonstrated through dance in God’s Daughter Dances and Wo, and impacted by the pandemic in The Leaf and Dear Chaemin, our queer selves are indivisible from our experiences in totality.

Graduation
Directed by Robin Wang
Comedy | 6 minutes | 13+ (Partial nudity)
Following a graduation celebration, four Chinese must navigate their relationships’ future as dictated by the circumstances of life and their families.

A Fire that Never Dies
Directed by Chheangkea Ieng
Drama | 7 minutes
A young man becomes infatuated with his upstairs neighbor after believing that his late mother has sent him.

The Leaf
Directed by William J. Zang
Documentary | 4 minutes
In English and Chinese with English subtitles
COVID-19 changed and destroyed everything in daily life, including filmmaking. THE LEAF is a personal, poetic, documentary film about a filmmaker’s experience as both a filmmaker and a gay immigrant during this pandemic.

Dear Chaemin
Directed by Cyan Bae
Documentary | 17 minutes | 13+ (Trans/Queer phobia)
In Korean with English subtitles
The autofictional film juxtaposes the Korean and Dutch contexts of contact tracing, biopolitics, and crowd control practices, each of which intensifies the stigmatization and violence against queer communities and people of Asian descent.

Wo
Directed by Jiemin Yang
Documentary | 11 minutes
A short dance film exploring the internal struggle of a queer Chinese American immigrant dance artist living in New York City.
