Synopsis

Miss Andy tells the story of Evon, formerly known as Andy, a transgender woman living in Malaysia. Transitioning late in life after losing a wife, job, and family, she is subjected to prejudice in a society that restricts LGBTQ+ freedoms. Evon’s life seems bleak until she has a chance encounter with an illegal migrant worker and her son, who are on the run with nowhere to go, and nobody to care for them. Evon offers them a place to stay, and her friendship with the pair slowly brings about change in her life, as she gains the confidence to begin trusting other people. Teddy Chin’s powerful, melancholy film features an outstanding performance by Lee Lee-zen, and confirms the importance of small acts of kindness.


Part of Queer East 2021, an LGBTQ+ film festival showcasing East and Southeast Asian queer cinema, in London from 15 to 26 September.


This screening is supported by the Ministry of Culture, Taiwan.
