The Teacher

Chen Ming Lang, Taiwan

我的靈魂是愛做的, 2019, 92 min, K16

High-school civics teacher Kevin is active in supporting the law for same-sex marriage. He is also looking for a partner to share more than a bed with, and finds a lover in slightly older Gao Jin-Wu. The relationship is intimate, but brings out questions both about the past and the future influenced by pressures and prejudices. Taiwan was the first country in Asia to pass the equal marriage law in 2019.
