World of Wong Kar-wai

Happy Together 15

Thu 5 Aug, 6.30pm | SOLD OUT

On the surface a bitter romance between two gay lovers halfway across the world in Argentina, Happy Together is also a potent commentary on an uncertain future - the two men's faultline-riddled relationship a potent commentary on the uncertain future faced by British Hong Kong’s LGBTQ+ community as the 1997 handover of Hong Kong from the UK to China approached.

Filmed by Wong’s go-to cinematographer, Christopher Doyle, in a refined mix of saturation and monochrome, Happy Together is made up of magical fragments woven together to create a beautiful piece of unforgettable cinema.
