David Ng is a queer, feminist, media artist, and co-founder of Love Intersections. His current artistic practices grapple with queer, racialized, and diasporic identity, and how intersectional identities can be expressed through media arts. His interests include imagining new possibilities of how queer racialized artists can use their practice to transform communities.
His work has also recently included collaborations with Primary Colours / Couleurs primaires, which is a national initiative to put Indigenous arts practices at the centre of the Canadian art system through the leadership of Indigenous artists, supported by artists of colour.
Eric Sanderson (cinematographer) is a maker of documentary films and videos based in Vancouver, BC. Graduating from SFU with a BFA in film production in 2009, he has since produced, directed, and shot a mix of short and medium-length documentaries and advocacy videos for a variety of clients.
He has dabbled in personal projects here and there, directing films that have screened at film festivals both locally and internationally, including Hot Docs in Toronto and DOXA in Vancouver.
As a cinematographer, he likes open spaces, long takes, and working with people who respect the storytelling power of a carefully-crafted image.
He sees documentary film as a medium that is uniquely positioned to interject a dose of empathy into our day to day discourses. He would like to see this happen more often.
