Free Screening Of "Deconstructing Zoe" says
Join us for the World Premiere screening of Rosa Fong’s film “Deconstructing Zoe,” presented by Pride Asia and Three Dollar Bill Cinema with Asian Counseling & Referral Service, Gender Odyssey Conference and Seattle Public Library in celebration of this year's Translations: Transgender Film Festival (May 12-15)

Zoe is a performance artist—of the stage, of identity, and now of the big screen. Zoe is also Chowee Leow, a Malaysian Chinese immigrant living in the UK. While Chowee endures racist remarks, Zoe is fetishized. Navigating gender professionally, politically, and personally—unpinning the binaries between man and women, trans and cis—Zoe finds authenticity in fluidity. Using segments of Zoe’s semi-autobiographical play, An Occasional Orchid, DECONSTRUCTING ZOE untangles the interconnections of Asian life in the diaspora and in the arts, exotification and imperialism, transmisogyny, gender and sexual fluidity, racism, and femininity.

Rosa Fong; 2015; UK; 52 min.

The Panel will be moderated by Pride ASIA Founder - Aleksa Manila with Atasha Manila (UTOPIA), Ryannah Quigley (Gender Justice League), Ro Yoon (FHCRC), Tanya Rachinee (UTOPIA), Victor Loo (ACRS).
