East Asian Focus: The Story of the Stone

December 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:45 pm

Free - £8

A queering of a tale from classical Chinese literature, thoroughly modernised and relocated to the midst of Taipei’s gay community. After the death of his boyfriend, Lin heads to the city, where he starts up a new relationship with waiter Josh. But their love is quickly threatened by jealousy, temptation, and tragedy. Beautifully stylised and acted, The Story of the Stone depicts a full range of the gay male experience in modern-day Taiwan, from its darkest sides to those of redemption and hope.

Film largely non-English language with only a small amount of significant spoken English dialogue and strong visual components, so less accessible for blind and partially sighted audiences. Large print handouts available.
