QUEER INTERVENTION:
FAREWELL MY CONCUBINE


Farewell My Concubine can be considered one of the most iconic queer films in Asian cinematic history for its implications of homosexuality and the gender-fluid performance by Lesley Cheung. However, its portrayal of queer and female trauma remains problematic for many in queer Asian communities where positive representations are still lacking. In this intervention, we reimagine an alternative narrative through a queer feminist lens, unpacking the patriarchy embedded within the film and interrogating how it represents queer and female subjects.  

Supported by Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.

SİNEMA+++ expands the spatial possibilities of cinema beyond the screen and explores its artistic and social potential. What is the relationship between the screen and the theatre, the cinematic images and the bodies in the space? How can newly developed projectors, expansive cinematic experiences and alternative forms of social exchange explore the relationship between film image and the bodies on and in front of the screen?  The event series SİNEMA+++ invites artistic projects to experiment with cinema experiences and develop crossover formats that examine the intersections of film, education, and performance.
