The theme of IDAHOTIHK this year is Well, being yourself is beautiful. Kaspar Wan, Director of Kaspar X and associate producer Anshuman Das will join the post-screening discussion.
A Place in the Middle
Ho’anai, a Haiwaiian 6th grade student, enjoys singing in her music class. In this school term, accompanied by her transgender teacher, Hina, Ho’onani brings us to experience the happiness and sadness in exploring sexuality, the true Aloha spirit. Nomited for Teddy Award and Crystal Bear, Berlin International Film Festival.
Kaspar X - If I had a Soul
Kaspar has aspired to be a man ever since he was young, and he struggles to reconnect with his life and with his God. When he is finally reborn as a trans-man his transition is welcome with love and support from his family and friends. Kaspar X – If I had a soul follows Kaspar’s personal journey through his conversations with his family and friends as he struggles to realign his body with his soul. A rare intimate documentary made in Hong Kong.
Director and producer
Kaspar (aka Siu-Keung) is a trans-man from Hong Kong. The ‘X’ represents his acquired gender X (on his Australian passport). He works for the transgender community and advocates for transgender rights in Hong Kong. He is working on an EOC funded research project and has represented Hong Kong at a few international conferences (WPATH, “Being LGBT in Asia”, ICAAP, Asia Pacific Trans Health Blueprint Meeting) as a trans-man. Kaspar frequently shares his experience as a transgender person at universities (HKU, CUHK, BU, City U, HKIEd, etc.), corporates (like Goldman Sachs), media (newspaper, TV, radio), and at community events (like IDAHOTI).
AD is an IT nerd in the morning, an author by noon, an activist in the evening, and a healer by night. That sequence may change a few times in any direction during the course of the day.
International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia was created in 2004 to draw the attention of policymakers, opinion leaders, social movements, the public and the media to the violence and discrimination experienced by LGBTI people internationally. The Day represents an annual landmark to draw the attention of decision makers, the media, the public, opinion leaders and local authorities to the alarming situation faced by lesbian, gay, bisexuals, transgender and intersex people and all those who do not conform to majority sexual and gender norms.
