Opening Party — Our Lives Elsewhere
We are happy to invite you to the opening event of CinemAsia’s LGBTQ Specials programme on Friday 1 March 2019 at 19:00 at NEVERNEVERLAND de Punt. The event will kick off with the opening party of the exhibition, Our Lives Elsewhere, which intends to provide a wider cultural context to CinemAsia LGBTQ film programme, acting as a backdrop as well as an archive, documenting the lives of Asian LGBTQ individuals across the continent those who are in The Netherlands by creating a platform to expose the work of Dutch-based, queer Asian creatives, such as Jonathan Ho and Xiaoxiao Xu, whose bodies of work explore the notions of the queer and Asian identities while forming a dialogue with the online LGBTQ individuals across Asia. The exhibition will run until 10 March, with a special performance on Saturday 9 March at 15:00 by ChinaRaw.
In addition to the exhibition, we have also put together a back-to-back Trans Focus Screening of The Rib (China) and Tracey (Hong Kong) on Thursday 7 March at 17:30 at Kriterion.
