Wong Kar Wai, Hong Kong, 1997, DCP, 96 min. 

Life is HAPPY TOGETHER, or anything but when a pair of gay lovers named Lai Yiu-Fai (Tony Leung Chiu-wai) and Ho Po-Wing (actor, cantopop star, and queer icon Leslie Cheung) move from Hong Kong to Buenos Aires to make a fresh start in their turbulent on-again off-again relationship. Sliding into expat life, the pair tango with betrayal, heartache, and each other. A blistering exploration of messy queer relationships and displacement, the film is as revolutionary today as it was in 1997 — the year of the Hong Kong hangover and its release —which saw cast and crew head to Argentina, unscripted, and — much like the country, into the unknown.
