Queer Coolie-tudes reclaims the slur of “Coolie and compellingly visualizes the inter-generational lives, histories, creole identities, familial relations and sexualities of a diverse range of subjects from the Queer Indo-Caribbean and Black Diasporas in Canada. Instead of succumbing to pressures to find a shared narrative or common ground, the documentary is a powerful collection of testimonies: mixed-race identities, genderqueer, gender, age and disability are portrayed in nuanced ways. Speaking to the limits of identity and the violence of mainstream categorizations, Queer Coolie-tudes uses an experimental visual aesthetic to illustrate the importance of not accepting erasure.
