Asian Cinema

Olivia Khoo

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines how the short format film contributes to the formation of queer Asian cinema as a category that incorporates the efforts of women filmmakers. It pays attention to how unique qualities of the short film allow women filmmakers to actively engage with each other’s work within and across the region, and how this transnational connection is redefining how we might come to understand the figure of the individual ‘auteur’ of Asian cinema.

Keywords:   Queer Asian cinema, Female authorship, Minor transnationalism, Short Film, Sun Koh, Singapore
