Pak is a taxi driver who should have retired by now. Every day he follows the same routine with his car, and the same routine with his family. Why change what he has always known? But one day his routine becomes undone forever by a chance meeting with Hoi. They have sex. Hoi, like Pak, is a grandfather. The difference between them is that Hoi is divorced. Will one stray text message be their undoing?
Based on oral histories, Suk Suk is a tender and intimate film that sidesteps the cliches of the narrative we think we know, and explores the very difficult task of being an older gay person in a society that does not know what to do with you. Alongside Hoi and Pak’s late-blooming romance are men who have been fighting for equality for years. And in our real world, as Hong Kong fights against the ever-encroaching might of China, Suk Suk is an act of quietly powerful defiance.
A Filmmaker Q&A will follow this screening.
