In this presentation, Julian CH Lee presents his 28 minute documentary, 'Closing the Doors'.
This film addresses human rights relating to sexual orientation and gender identity in Malaysia and tells the story of a particular furore there in 2011. In addition to contextualising the social and political context of the events in the film and discussing rights issues in Malaysia, Julian Lee will reflect on his experiences in communicating with non-academic audiences through his regular magazine columns and film. (Those interested may also wish to see his 2014 short film, For Japan, Our Sister).
