Radicalizing Intimacy in Queer Asian Canadian Youth
by Stephanie Fung and Joanna Yang

How do multiple identities (Canadian, youth, Asian, queer) intersect and shape the way we navigate our world? This short film documentary explores how six queer Asian Canadian youth redefine and radicalize the concept of intimacy. Various types of intimacy that defy heteronormative values suggest that seemingly “concrete” notions of closeness and identity are not so straightforward after all.

Filmed on traditional and unceded territories of the Coast Salish people, Vancouver B.C., Canada.
