Gladys Lou. Power: Being a Queer BIPOC Artist. 2023. Documentary Film
Power: Being a Queer BIPOC Artist is a short documentary featuring interviews and behind-the-scene talks with 4 BIPOC, 2SLGBTQ+ performing artists in the Peel region. Due to the lack of films about the community, I created this documentary to properly represent the challenges members of marginalized communities face in society.
Gladys Lou is a Hong Kong-Canadian artist and writer with an HBA in Art & Art History and Psychology in the joint University of Toronto Mississauga and Sheridan College program, with a Certificate in Curatorial Studies. Her practice utilizes experimental media including video, sound, photography, and new media to challenge the boundaries between visual art and performance. At the very heart of her artistic practice is to create accessible art that examines the issues faced by those marginalized in our society, uplifting voices of the racialized and 2SLGBTQIA+ community with lived experience of mental illness.
