SQIFF 2019 Black History Month: Calalai: In Betweenness + shorts


Tuesday 22 October 2019

Calalai: In Betweenness by filmmaker Kiki Febriyanti depicts women in South Sulawesi Bugis culture, which for centuries has accepted gender diversity as implicit, believing humans consist of 5 genders, one of them being calalai. The film takes a closer look at the definition of femininity and masculinity in the Bugis culture. What or who is calalai? What are the dynamics of gender, spirituality, and performance? How do these dynamics define the everyday life of the Bugis people?

Screening with accompanying short films and discussion on queerness in Indonesian cultures outside of white, colonialist impositions.

Curated and hosted by artist and researcher Claricia Parinussa.
