East Asian Focus: Alifu The Prince/ss

December 9, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 10:10 pm


set of intersecting queer Taiwanese stories about love, identity and loss. Alifu, a member of an indigenous Paiwan community, is selected to succeed her father as the head of her tribe, but hasn’t yet come out to her family as trans. She is attracted to Chris, a closeted drag performer, while her flatmate, Peizhan, is also dangerously obsessed with Alifu. At the same time, Sherry, the trans woman who runs the nightclub where Chris performs, suddenly becomes ill, forcing Wu, her long-time friend and plumber, to remember their shared past as he cares for her.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.

Film is in Taiwanese, Mandarin Chinese, Paiwan, and English languages with English language subtitles/captions. Hearing loop available.

Film relies on visual material to convey ideas and is mostly non-English language, so is less accessible for blind and partially sighted audiences.

Large print versions of handouts available.

CCA has good access for wheelchair users. Click here for more details on venue access.

Comfy seating (bean bags) available. If you would like to reserve this, please contact access@sqiff.org.

In order to make SQIFF more accessible to those on a low income, we use a sliding scale ticket price of £0-£8 for our events. You can choose what you pay based on your circumstances – you won’t be asked for any proof / ID, we just ask that you are honest! Our ticket sales go towards supporting the vital work of LGBTQ+ filmmakers, artists and organisers.
