Three people embrace on a sofa, one with grey hair, one with dark hair and a beige jacket, and one with a long skirt.

Sheer Qorma

This event hosts films that provide insight into contemporary queer Asian life.

The films present tender moments of love and acceptance as well as conflict. We are often shown the pain, protest, and fear of being queer in Asia in the media. This is important - the global queer community should be aware of such intersectional struggles. But there are moments of humanity too. Even though this screening depicts vulnerability, it also explores queer joy.

Featuring three short films about queer Asian people, including Faraz Arif Ansari’s Sheer Qorma.

Curated by Nat Lall.
