Some Women

Quen WONG Singapore 71 Min R21 (Mature Content) World Premiere

In this intimate yet powerful debut feature, a local transgender filmmaker lays bare her vulnerabilities to reclaim her identity.

With bracing honesty, filmmaker Quen WONG shares her journey as a transgender woman in Singapore—from her days as a teenage boy coming out to her uncommonly supportive family, to the present as a woman about to marry the love of her life. Locating herself within the local trans community, the documentary also weaves in interviews with different generations of trans women including ‘Anita’, a former legend of Bugis Street—a world-famous stomping ground for trans women in the 1950s to the ’80s—and Lune LOH, a trans youth activist.

Some Women is a recipient of the Tan Ean Kiam Foundation-SGIFF Southeast Asian Documentary (SEA-DOC) Grant.
