As the Queer collective CINEMQ put it, filmmaker He Xiaopei dives “into the deep water fringes of society, documenting the lives of non-conformist queers and alternative lifestyle advocates.”
When her first documentary, The Lucky One, reached 100,000 views on YouTube and won prizes at international film festivals, Xiaopei came to a realization.
“From that moment,” she told me “I said I’m only making films now because each time we have meetings, twenty people at most come, talking about their sexy stories. And [anyone] who knows the story after, stays in this room.”
