Dive In Deep—QWOCMAP Shorts

From a Chinese Butch in the Beat era to the comedic tribulations of preparing a romantic dinner and intoxicating kisses that linger through the decades, dive into the depths of these compelling films and soak up their verve and flair! The Worlds of Bernice Bing illuminates the life of this little known Abstract Expressionist painter, Beat-era Existentialist, Buddhist, and Chinese American lesbian. A Black lesbian transforms grief for her late partner through a vibrant Austin garden in Remembering Ana. A young queer Hawaiian woman mourns her father’s death and finds life through the healing power of her culture in Ka Mana O Ke Ola. Amidst the undercurrents between them, a lesbian chronicles her mother’s journey from Tokyo to Little Rock to becoming Obachan to her chosen queer family. For a Xicana on a path to self-discovery, Life y Pozole embraces both her cultural and queer identities. While preparing Dinner For Two, a young queer mixed Japanese American woman desperately strives to create a romantic vegan meal. The passion between two queer Black women ripples across the vastness of different decades in Your Kiss. Joy, acceptance, and laughter spring from Corazón de Familia to fill our spirits with the stories of queer Latinas and their children.
