ArtsEmerson Film: ‘Suk Suk’ (‘Twilight Kiss’)
June 9 - June 16Free – $25
Suk Suk presents the story of two closeted married men in their twilight years. One day Pak, 70, a taxi driver who refuses to retire, meets Hoi, 65, a retired single father, in a park. Despite years of societal and personal pressure, they are proud of the families they have created through hard work and determination. Yet in that brief initial encounter, something is unleashed in them which had been suppressed for so many years. As both men recount and recall their personal histories, they also contemplate a possible future together.
Suk Suk was the Jury Award Narrative Feature Winner for Boston’s 2020 Wicked Queer Festival and received the Hong Kong Film Award for Best Screenplay and Best Director in 2020. Q&A with filmmaker to follow screening.
