In 1984 Richard Fung released his first documentary, Orientations: Lesbian and Gay Asians. This was the first documentary on the experiences and perspectives of diasporic queer Asians in North America, and captured the texture of gay life and politics in Toronto at that time. Re:Orientations revisits seven of the original participants as they encounter the footage of their younger selves and reflect on their lives over the intervening three decades.
This screening will be accompanied by the short film Sea in the Blood.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Richard Fung, Professor Richard Dyer (Kings College London) and Professor Patricia White (Swarthmore College, USA).
