HONG KHAOU’S LILTING TO OPEN LONDON LESBIAN AND GAY FILM FESTIVAL
The LLGFF Will Play Host The European Premiere of Lilting.
Cambodian-born director and now resent of London, Hong Khaou will see his cross-generational drama Lilting receive its European premiere at the 28th LLGFF.
The film originally screened at this year’s Sundance, where it opened the World Cinema Dramatic Competition, where the film’s DoP, Ula Pontikos (Andrew Haigh’s Weekend) picked up a gong for cinematography.
Starring Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, 2012) and Cheng Pei Pei (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, 2000), the drama concerns the growing bond between an aging Cambodian woman, June (Cheng), and a young Brit, Richard (Whishaw), who was in a relationship with her son.
Lilting will play alongside 50 other titles at the LLGFF, which runs form March 20-30, 2014. This year the festival will also be making a selection of titles available to watch online via the BFI Player.
