In February 2020, Queer Forever! Festival and San Art invite you to “Vườn Lài ăn khoai chấm mật,” a garden in which we play with queer movies, with ourselves, with each other.

This iteration of the garden opens at Sàn Art. In a white chamber, we will spread out some mats, drink tea, watch queer movies and talk about queer movies. The garden will also be a place where we could write, listen, watch, collage, learn about queerness and about Vietnamese queer movies.
