Bi China

Bisexuals. Who are they? What lives do they lead? How do they feel about coming out? What are their thoughts on gender? What do they strive for in their love- and sex-lives?
Living in a world where bisexuals continue to be stigmatized and misunderstood, bisexual director Wei Tingting goes on a mission to uncover the hearts and minds of the bisexual community. She ends up encountering varied individuals with utterly different and contrasting views and experiences on sex, love, gender and identity.

This documentary explores the rich living experiences of bisexuals in China, and traces how a wildly diverse group of people incorporate a combination of male- and female-centered love and passion.

Director Statement

"Bi China" talks about and explores the bisexual community in China. The film dives into the various meanings of the word "bisexuality", and explores bisexual desires and experiences. I also challenge and question my bisexual self throughout the film.
The answers I found throughout making this film, are connected and contradictory. They are dispersed throughout the various stories and words I encountered, and are inextricably linked to the elasticity of the concept of bisexuality.
