You are invited to Wai-Tung and Simon’s wedding – it’s Simon’s first but the second for Wei-Tung.
A reimagined story of Wei-Tung and Simon inspired by Ang Lee’s The Wedding Banquet set in a post-same-sex marriage era.
This special immersive screening event comes with a short live performance directed by London-based theatre-maker Xinxi Du, exploring an alternative version of Wei-Tung and Simon’s love story. It will be followed by a film screening of The Wedding Banquet, directed by three-time Oscar winner, Ang Lee in 1993.
The Wedding Banquet (1993, Taiwan) is a classic romantic comedy tells the story of Wai-Tung, a gay Taiwanese guy living in Manhattan, who resolves to marry a woman in order to appease his parents. But what begins as a convenient lie evolves into an elaborate farce when his parents decide to fly to America for the wedding.
A set of snacks will be provided in the event with vegan option available.
