Biography

Malaysia-bred, Tokyo-trained Lim worked for a decade within the Japanese lesbian movement, making several videos (such as Disposable Lez, 2000, 7) and a feature film, all notable for their lighthearted satirical humour and busy, colourful sense of the frame. Settling in Vancouver in 2002, she is involved in TV development projects and co-directed with Winston Xin the resourcefully comic documentary Salty Wet (2002, 9), in which local Chinese-Canadians debate adaptations of queer language in Cantonese, including the strange phrases "eating the carpet" and "hitting the airplane!"
