Panel Discussion – For Our Gaze Only: Disability and Voyeurism in Art and Film
(Follows immediately after film screening)
“Seeing Diane Arbus” was selected to receive Superfest’s 2022 Jury’s Choice Award— praised for its critical approach to disability, voyeurism, and the legacy of famed photographer Diane Arbus. Join us for a discussion with Superfest filmmakers and stars as we explore the ongoing legacy of staring at disability in film and the art world. We will also connect our festival to our host venue, the Asian Art Museum, as Asian and Asian American communities have similarly struggled with the fetishistic gaze. Features Sandy Ho (moderator), Natasha Ofili (Aimee Victoria [actor] and The Multi [actor and director]), Katrina Kemp (Seeing Diane Arbus [actor]), Lindsay Zibach (Seeing Diane Arbus [director]), and Karen Nakamura [former Superfest juror and Professor of Anthropology at UC Berkeley).

Sunday COVID procedures: Because Superfest is hosted by the Longmore Institute at San Francisco State University, we are limited in our ability to put the Covid safety procedures that we would like to provide. Similarly, the Asian Art Museum is limited by city guidelines. Therefore, proof of vaccination status is not required, and masks are optional. We would like to remind our guests that many people attending Superfest are at higher risk of complications from COVID-19 so masks are strongly recommended.
Photos will be taken. To opt out, please contact us at [email protected] or tell a Superfest staff person, and we will ensure that your photographs will be blurred out in any future promotional materials.
