Kristin Li was born in Chengdu, China, and currently works in Tiohtià:ke (Montreal) and Tkaronto (Toronto), Canada. As a filmmaker and multimedia artist, Kristin creates narratives, animations, documentaries, installations, and encounters that explore contemporary formations of power. These projects investigate the foundational divisions and hierarchies that maintain our social order—the ways these systems condition us in spite of our intentions, and the hidden sites of possibility that we can exploit towards greater collective capacities.
Since 2009, Kristin has been a collective member of the Prisoner Correspondence Project, a volunteer-run penpal program, resource library, and newsletter for LGBTQ+ prisoners across Canada and the United States.
