Stories from the Periphery presents a multi-faceted collection of stories and experiences by and about women, queer, non-binary, and transgender individuals with East, Southeast Asian, and diasporic backgrounds. Told on their own terms, each story reveals personal journeys of becoming, contemplation, and remembering through filmmaking. In a world where the omission of men and the male gaze is often politicized, Stories from the Periphery offers a tender view of alternative imaginaries, determinations, reconciliations, and memories, bringing to light perspectives which are often neglected and silenced.
