About this Event

Pink Alliance and Tongzhi Literary Group present an evening of film and discussion exploring ageing and sexuality, featuring the award-winning film SUK SUK and the book that inspired the story, Oral Histories of Older Gay Men in Hong Kong: Unspoken but Unforgotten.

The movie tells the story of two closeted men in their twilight years, Pak, a 70-year-old married taxi driver who refuses to retire, and Hoi, a 65-year-old retired single father. Despite years of societal and personal pressure, they are proud of the families they have created through hard work and determination. Yet, when they meet, something that had been suppressed for so many years is unleashed in them.

In his book, author Travis Kong shines a light on ageing and sexuality, identity and masculinity, power and resistance through thirteen gay men who share their lives in this groundbreaking work.

Both the author and the director will be in attendance along with some special guests.

Tickets are available online only and will not be sold at the door.

Watch a "behind the scenes" trailer of the movie here!

粉紅同盟和同志文學小組為大家呈獻《叔·叔》放映與對談會。改編自《男男正傳︰香港年長男同志口述史》,電影講述老年男同志與愛情的故事,而當晚更有一眾嘉賓與大家就相關議題作深度交流。

《叔·叔》的故事圍繞著兩位躲在櫃裡多年的男同志。柏,一個永不言休的70歲的士司機,和海,一個65歲的單身父親。雖經多年的社會和自我壓迫,能令他們自豪的,是他們努力建立的家庭。想不到當他們遇上對方,多年來抑壓內心的渴望卻釋放出來。

在《男男正傳︰香港年長男同志口述史》中,江紹祺透過13位男同志的故事,探視老年與性取向、身份與男子氣概、權力與反抗等議題。

原著作者、導演及特別嘉賓將會出席
