This event consists of the screening of the 2021 film Bad Women of China and a post-screening Q&A with the queer feminist director Xiaopei He.
The focus of the event is on global queer feminist cultural politics. This event asks: what would a queer, feminist and postcolonial queer feminist politics look like, and how is it manifested on screen and in storytelling? Who are the ‘unsung heroes’ working behind the screen?
Organised by the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Contemporary East Asian Cultural Studies as part of Nottingham’s LGBT+ History Month, this event showcases the diversity of global queer culture.
It also celebrates the work of queer women working in the screen industries worldwide who offer us a more diverse representation and richer understanding of and contemporary queer life.
Although the director’s Q&A will take place online, the event is an in-person event and is not open to an online audience.
Booking is essential for participants from outside the Gender, Sexuality and Media class.
