Synopsis

“In response to the dominant impression that gay people are white people, Orientations aims to set the record straight on homosexual identity.”(1) The film features 14 interviews with lesbians and gay men from diverse backgrounds, lifestyles and outlooks. Allowing his subject to situate themselves within their own cultural history but also permitting them to examine their place within Western culture, Fung’s documentary serves both as an “educational” tool and as a tool of empowerment and emancipation.
