------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To extend the discussion on Gender and Identity that the WOMEN exhibition has brought about, we are hosting a day of discussion with screenings on Gender & Identity in China.

Panel will feature CCC Artistic Director and Curator of WOMEN, Abby Chen, and artists from the documentary and the exhibition.

Never before seen in the US, these two screenings are showing at the Chinese Culture Center to get an in-depth view about the feminism and LGBTQ movement in China.

WOMEN我們, titled with the Mandarin-English homophone 我們, meaning both women
and
“we,” is the debut documentary film by director Walker Lee. Drawing upon the
exhibition, curated by Abby Chen in 2011, the film expanded beyond presenting
the exhibition that featured works on feminism, genderqueer equality, to street
performance and lives of LGBTQ community. The documentary is the first of its kind about issues on
sexuality in Shanghai.

Runtime: 86 minutes

MY LITTLE ONE, is a documentary film made by independent artist Er Gao and his
collaborator Li Zhe, about the gay and lesbian lifestyles in Guangzhou. The video shows a
raw dialogue between the filmmakers and the various members of the LGBTQ community
about their stories and their perspectives about their lifestyles in Guangzhou.
Er Gao Production is an independent artist collective based on Guangzhou. The group was
formed by Er Gao and his group of friends who were all upcoming talents in choreography,
music, sculpture and video art to experiemnt in a new discipline of theater art. Their
works are distinguished through their frequent exploration on gender, body and identity.

Runtime: 56 minutes


*Tickets available for purchase on the day of the show, subject to availability. Members are always $5; general public tickets are $5 before the show, sliding scale $10-15 at the door.

Reception with light refreshments served at Intermission.
