Synopsis

Filmed over 17 years across Southern China, The Two Lives of Li Ermao is the intimate and heart wrenching story of Li Ermao, a transgender migrant worker and performer. In this touching tale we witness Li Ermao's search for identity, struggle for love and fight for survival as she faces prejudice and aggression with equal measures of resilience and vulnerability. Produced by Kiki Tianqi Yu, Yu Haibo and André Singer, the film sees director Jia Yuchuan’s relationship with his subject gradually change, something which only increases its emotional impact.


Part of the 2021 Chinese Visual Festival, which runs 15-25 July in London: www.Chinesevisualfestival.org
