Mrs. Noisy

Filmrecensie: Mrs. Noisy | ミセス・ノイズィ(2019); Regie: Chihiro Amano | CinemAsia Film Festival 2020

Tijdens de première van de komedie film Mrs. Noisy | ミセス・ノイズィ (2019), die vertoond werd tijdens CinemAsia 2020, moest ik alleen maar lachen en sympathiseerde ik met de hoofdpersonen van het verhaal. De film bracht tranen in mijn ogen van vreugde en verdriet. Mrs. Noisy riep tegelijkertijd veel emoties op en gaf me nieuwe inzichten van het leven. . .

“..His reasons for hiring me were simple, I was honest, always neat AND gay..”

“I was thinking today how it was for me before I came out of the closet. I had a crush on a classmate. A quiet, sweet blond boy. I was bullied because I was apparently very gay back then, while I wasn’t really aware of it or even understood it. . .

Sitges

“..Sitges during Gay Pride … You are in charge of your own body..”

“About a year ago I was on holiday in Sitges during Gay Pride. I met a nice man and we had chemistry between us. We went out dancing and drinking, etc. Finally, we went to his hotel room and we had sex. It was not all the way, but we kissed and had oral sex, but I didn’t want to continue. . .

XY Chelsea

Filmrecensie: XY Chelsea (2019); IDFA Queer day (Nederlands).

Beoordeling: ✯✯✯✯ – 4/5. XY Chelsea (2019) heeft mij geboeid van het begin tot het einde. Het verhaallijn heeft een erg mooie opbouw. Hawkins zorgt ervoor dat iedereen die de situatie van Chelsea Manning niet kent aan het einde goed geïnformeerd is. Naar mijn mening vind ik het belangrijk om te zien hoe een heel land verdeeld kan raken door slechts één persoon. Is zij een heroïne of een verrader?

Alex Kain: “..It’s okay to identify with gender non-conformity and just be your true self..”

“I believe that the LGBTQI+ community is for and by the community and the concept of empowerment for transgender people is definitely on. . .

Darunee

Darunee: “..a personal and very important mission to make these invisible stories visible!..”

“Being queer as an Asian is a taboo even though there is progress in many countries in Asia, but I still think that especially among immigrant communities it’s still a very big deal and a difficult topic to talk about. . .
