Post-film Q&A with producers Qiu Bai, Hongwei Bao and Director Jamie Chi online from Hong Kong.

A film documenting the lives of Queer Chinese under the Pandemic.

Safe Distance directed by Jamie Chi is a documentary film that explores queer Chinese individuals' lived experiences of discrimination and ostracization in the UK during the pandemic. It involves 31 queer-identified interviewees who come from Chinese societies and backgrounds, including the UK, mainland China, Hong Kong, Canada, the Netherlands and Singapore, and who currently reside in this country. It examines themes incorporating identity, intersectionality, mental health, discrimination, migration, and the notion of home and community. Jamie Chi draws parallels between Covid and the HIV/AIDS pandemic of the 1980s to alert people to the history of discrimination against the queer community. She also highlights how queer Chinese individuals have experienced particular discrimination through racism and homophobia. The film will be introduced by the producer Qiu Bai with online participation by Jamie Chi from Hong Kong.

Screening followed by Q&A with producer Qiu Bai and Hongwei Bao joined by Director Jamie Chi online from Hong Kong.
