The Alphabet of Feeling Bad shows an experimental interview conducted by the theorist and activist Ann CVETKOVICH. The film offers a queerfeminist
 framework to interpret words of negative feelings, like despair, depression, and failure, hinting at the possibility of collective and
 political emotions. Negative feelings, such as depression and loss, should not be understood as personal failure or illness. Rather they must be
 politicized as ‘public&collective feelings’ of this world, in which homophobia, racism, and neoliberal exploitations are prevalent. [HONG So-in]
