MyWorld Curators' Shortlist: Chinese Belly Dancer

In this extraordinary entry from China, Adina Eichenholz shines a light on the complexities of gender and sexuality in China and focuses on the male belly dancer Guan Sheng Song. This film is about more than just belly dancing, as Adina says, Guan Sheng Song is "a living example of the complex issues facing Chinese society today – he is the individualist swimming against the current of family and society and following his passion.”
