Dir Quen Wong / Singapore / 2021 / 71min
Turning the camera on herself, Singaporean filmmaker Quen Wong disrupts the silence around anti-trans discrimination in this deeply personal and thought-provoking documentary. Counting down to her wedding day, she traces her journey of finding love and community as a trans woman, sharing intimate moments with her fiancé and family. From the glory days of Bugis street to the present-day fight for queer rights, Quen eloquently chronicles the untold stories of trans women from three different generations in Singapore, posing critical questions about the survival of the LGBTQI+ community under a conservative government.
