LittleQFilmFest: Lesbian Factory
Sunday Feb 3, 2013 9:00am-12:00pm in Chicago
The little Queer Film Festival: www.littlequeerfilmfest.org
Festival Screening: Lesbian Factory, Documentary| 56 min|Taiwan

Lesbian Factory is a love story as well as a documentary about a social movement. The director gets to help a labor dispute of female migrant workers from the Philippines, in jeopardy of losing their jobs due to the factory closure and embezzlement by their boss, with those activists from the Taiwan International Workers’ Association (TIWA). The situation is that the workers haven’t been paid for three months and are about to lose their jobs. The TIWA begins organizing them in group protests. The director, who came to record the protest, unexpectedly observes lesbian couples taking an active role in the process. As the documentary gets to know them, the focus turns toward the close bonds, mutual reliance and warm feelings among seven couples. Those couples, who have developed feelings for and counted on each other while living together in the dorm in a foreign country, talk about their love sometimes shyly and sometimes daringly.

However, their relationship hasn’t been all that smooth. Even though their feelings for each other have become stronger as they go through the prolonged dispute and unavoidable compromises, Taiwan’s unreasonable system for migrant workers and discrimination gives their love a hard time. The film intimately shows how a loving relationship intertwines with the working conditions of immigrant workers in globalization.
