ShanghaiPRIDE Film Festival: Lilting《轻轻摇晃》

Lilting
Director: Hong Khaou
Country & Year: UK, 2014
Starring: Ben Whishaw and Cheng Pei Pei
Chinese & English with subtitles

Thirty years after leaving China for England, Junn lives alone in a home for the elderly in London. Her only companion is the memory of her son, Kai, whose untimely death has left her isolated in a culture she never fully assimilated into. Junn’s solitude is disrupted by Richard, whose relationship with her son was not what she had thought. With the help of a translator, Junn and Richard come to know each other in grief. Their mutual love for Kai transcends boundaries of language. “Sometimes, it seems we understand one another.”

ShanghaiPRIDE Film Festival is honored to present Hong Khaou’s debut feature for its first public screening in Shanghai. Lilting received award nominations at BIFA, BAFTA and Sundance, taking home the 2014 prize for Cinematography.
