Queer Coolie-tudes is a creative queer ethnographic documentary which utilizes experimental aesthetics that mirrors Caribbean philosopher Edouard Glissant’s concept of opacity, to reclaims the slur of Coolie and compellingly visualizes the inter-generational lives, histories, identities, familial relations and sexualities of a diverse range of subjects (artists, academics, and activists) from the Queer Indo-Caribbean and Black diasporas in Canada. Queer Coolie-tudes is a powerful collection of testimonies which embraces the complexities of Creole (mixed-race) identities, gender/genderqueer identity, age, and mobility are portrayed in nuanced ways. Speaking to the limits of identity and to the violence of mainstream categorizations, Queer Coolie-tudes embraces the importance of not accepting erasure
