Hong Khaou

Hong Khaou | United Kingdom | 2013 | 86 min. | V.O. English subtitled in Spanish

It isn’t always easy to reconcile positions, especially when they are as far apart as those of the two people left in mourning by Kai’s death: Richard, his English boyfriend, and his mother Junn, who only speaks Mandarin. In his search for the missing pieces to overcome his grief, Richard hires an interpreter so he can talk to Junn. But he soon realizes that they are separated not only by language but also by different worlds and cultures. And by Junn’s resistance to accept her son’s homosexuality, and to understand the nature of Richard’s love for him.
