'Queer Rainbow' is reserved for works that advocate diversity of sexual orientation, and show what kind of possibilities and conflicts are generated by that diversity in different countries around the world. This year's program observes different localities facing queer lives, reflecting on and celebrating the achievements of the queer art movement, and delves into queer popular culture fandom where both intense arguments and actions are organized.
Queer Genius features five renowned lesbian artists who have performing arts in common but extend the scope of their artistic activities to different sectors, such as local movements, filmmaking, education, literature, and theoretical research. The artistic activities of those from different generations and regions pull up the solid roots, stems and leaves of the American lesbian community that have existed for 50 years since the time of the Stonewall uprising. In addition, the camera captures fantastic performances and scenery. Queer Japan portrays 'diverse' lives within Japan's LGBTQ+ community since the legalization of samesex marriage in Shibuya. Their lives seem to cross or contradict each other sometimes. The documentary aims to show the most pleasant and enterprising moments in their lives. Since the law criminalizing homosexual acts in India was struck down, 'homosexuality' has been popular subject matter in commercial and independent films as well as in public propaganda films geared towards enlightenment. Yeh Freedom Life follows the daily lives and anxieties of two lesbians in Delhi and clearly illustrates the problem of locality in queer life. Take Me Home is the story of those who attempt to put together an alternative, lesbian family in Korea. Little Girl takes a careful and considerate approach to a highly controversial theme. Queering the Script presents a loving in-depth analysis of popular culture fandom. Dear Girl, Joan's Galaxy, and Tahara are stories of lesbian romances that arise in the midst of intersecting cultural, political and economic backgrounds involving race, religion, social class and locality.
