Event description

Description

After our SOLD OUT premiere, "YELLOW PERIL: QUEER DESTINY" will be screening for a second time on Sept 24th, with a Q&A with the filmmakers (Jen Sungshine, David Ng, and Kendell Yan) following the film.


Yellow Peril: Queer Destiny is a new short documentary from local filmmakers Love Intersections that probes the nuances of Queer Chinese Canadian identity. The film investigates how being part of a distant diaspora, as well as being othered as outsiders in Canada, informs the racial and queer identities of the subjects. We follow local drag artist Kendell Yan, otherwise known as Maiden China, along with other local queer Chinese performers and activists as their intimate interviews engage with different community issues that they face, including the lack of representation, to sexual racism, which informs the forging of identities by queer Chinese Canadians.

We want to thank TELUS STORYHIVE for supporting this project!

Yellow Peril: Queer Destiny | David Ng, Jen Sungshine | Canada | 2019 | 20 mins | English

Directors Jen Sungshine and David Ng of Love Intersections and interviewees will be in attendance for a Q&A.
