diaspora/situations est un documentaire sur les identités diasporiques queer, avec des activistes et artistes de couleur qui décrivent leur rapport à leur corps et à leurs affects entre Montréal, Paris, Bruxelles, Nantes et Londres.

Shot between Montreal, Paris, Brussels, Nantes and London, diaspora/situations is a documentary on queer diasporic life, based on interviews with queer and trans artists and activists of color as they reflect on their relationships to their affects and bodies.

The complexities of the body – of skin colour, gender, size, disability, nourishment – are vocalized and enacted by a number of artists, activists, and performers whose existence is that of someone living in one world and coming from another. The documentary, which never lets the viewer forget its constructed nature, the camera’s impact on the body, chronicles the transformative ways its subjects have found to express their unique position, whether it be through voguing, poetry, cooking, or paths still being explored.
