CGiii Comment

Why this was shortlisted for the Iris Prize will remain a mystery for ever more.

It's not a well-made film! It's not an engaging film!

It's a point-and-shoot exercise...of talking heads. No artistry whatsoever.

The(ir) Blurb...

From 2014-2015, masamojo, along with a team of two photographers, who are straight, took a journey across 11 cities in China, making portraits of 48 gays and lesbians and their families. A short film was made during the journey, documenting the stories they told for the first time.

Due to the massive amounts of spam we receive, the comments section is curated...so, no spam, no swearing, nothing unrelated to the film...they just won't be published! Time is precious, let's not waste it!
