ShanghaiPRIDE Film Festival: Out & Around《走出来》

Out & Around
Director: Lauren Fash & Ryan Suffern
Country and Year: US, 2015

“Equality is not a western invention.” Hilary Clinton’s remark beseeches no doubt. However, what is equality really like in other parts of the world, and how are queers in non-Western countries fighting for their deserved equality? Out of fascination and concern, adventurous American lesbian couple, Jenni and Lisa, decided to leave their 9-5 jobs in San Francisco, pick up a video camera, and travel through Asia, Africa and South America in search of the people who are leading the movement for LGBT equality. Combining intimate verite and video-journal footage of this couple’s year-long journey with their interviews of LGBT leaders across the developing world, Out & Around documents the momentous changes occurring in the status of queer people around the world today.

《走出来》
导演:劳伦·法什 & 瑞安·沙芬
地区及时间:美国,2015

“平等不是一种西方干预。”希拉里·克林顿一语中的。然而,世界其他地区的平等问题到底是怎样的?非西方国家的酷儿们又是如何为自己应得的平等而奋斗的?出于好奇与担忧,极具冒险精神的美国女同性恋者珍妮与丽莎决定抛下自己在旧金山朝九晚五的工作,拾起摄像机,穿越亚非拉,寻找在各地领导LGBT平等运动的人们。《走出来》将细腻的现实与一年旅途中和发展中国家LGBT领袖们的采访影像结合在一起,记录了今日世界各地酷儿群体地位发生着的重大变化。
