HAN Shuai Hong Kong 2023 92 min R21 (Some Homosexual Content)
After a chance encounter, two women find themselves in the underbelly of Seoul in this dark feminist tale of survival.
Chinese immigrant Xia works as an airport security staff in South Korea. When she catches a spunky, green-haired drug smuggler on the job, Xia is unexpectedly beguiled by the wayward girl. Seeking freedom from the abusive men in their lives, the duo embark on an arduous night in Seoul’s drug underworld. But when blood spills, the women go on the run, with only each other to rely on.
From their shared predicament blooms a deep tenderness and solidarity, bound by the desire to escape oppression. Green Night adapts film noir’s gritty masculinity to portray a female bond that is gentle yet unflinching in the will to survive.
