Suk Suk

  • 2019, Cantonese, 92mins, DCP, Colour

Inspired by the book Oral Histories of Older Gay Men in Hong Kong: Unspoken but Unforgotten, director Ray Yeung tells the heartrending story of a forbidden love between two closeted elderly gay men in this beautifully crafted romance drama. Veteran taxi driver Pak and retired single father Hoi quickly fall in love after a random encounter at a park. Though bounded by their responsibility to their respective families, the two men find their long-repressed emotions unleashed during their secret rendezvous. Yeung’s elegantly understated depiction of a marginalised group even within Hong Kong’s LGBTIQ+ community won critical acclaim and awards at film festivals around the world. Back at home, the film also earned veteran actor Tai Bo his first ever Best Actor prize and a Best Supporting Actress prize for Patra Au at the Hong Kong Film Awards.
