This screening is the UK-wide premiere of Safe Distance, a documentary by filmmaker Jamie Chi. Jamie’s film explores queer Chinese individuals’ lived experiences and narratives in the UK, during the COVID-19 pandemic. The film is based on interactions with 31 queer-identified interviewees who come from different Chinese societies and backgrounds, including mainland China, Hong Kong, Canada, the Netherlands, the UK, and Singapore, all of whom are currently based in the UK. Safe Distance examines intersecting issues, including identity, intersectionality, mental health, discrimination, migration, the notion of home and community.
