Opening Screening: Tracey

Sat 19 October 2019

Tung Tai-hung, 51 and married, receives a long-distance call from London one night and learns about the death of long-time friend Ching. The caller, Bond, turns out to be Ching’s male husband, who informs Tai-hung that he’s bringing Ching’s ashes to Hong Kong soon. The sudden death of an old friend reawakens yearnings in a dutiful father that have been hidden for decades. This intelligently scripted, timely LGBTQ+ drama is the debut feature from director Jun Li and the first of its kind from Hong Kong.
