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.
Post-screening discussion with director Richard Fung, Professor Richard Dyer (Kings) and Professor Patricia White (Swarthmore); Chair: Professor Jackie Stacey (Manchester)
This is one of a series of public events that accompany the Sexuality Summer School, a five-day event for postgraduates, organized by the Centre for the Study of Sexuality and Culture (CSSC) at the University of Manchester since 2008 and funded by the University of Manchester Faculty of Humanities and Screen, and partnered by Contact, HOME and Manchester Pride. The Sexuality Summer School brings postgraduates, researchers and international scholars together with artists and filmmakers to facilitate dialogue and discussions that speak to contemporary debates in queer and feminist sexuality studies, with a particular emphasis on the interdisciplinary study of culture.
