A fascinating peek into the lives and thoughts of seven queer pan-Asian Canadians as they look back on a 1985 documentary in which they were featured. How have they changed? And how has the world around them evolved and changed?
In 1985, Richard Fung released Orientations: Lesbian and Gay Asians, the first documentary to explore the experiences and perspectives of queer Asians in North America. Capturing pivotal moments in Toronto’s history, it presents an intimate portrait of the texture of gay lives and politics at that time. Re:Orientations revisits seven of the original participants as they see anew the footage of their younger selves, and reflect on their lives and all that has changed over the intervening three decades. Their interviews are deepened and contextualized by conversations with six younger queer and trans activists, scholars and artists.
