Tuī Ná

15m Drama 2021

For one teenager, queer identity collides with familial expectation and the intricacies of the immigrant experience.

Winner of Queer Screen’s 2019 Pitch Off competition, Chinese-Australian filmmaker William Duan’s poignant, emotionally rich account centres on a 17-year-old caught between culture and coming to terms with the self. Tuī Ná is an arresting examination of honesty, shame and filial duty that eschews Western queer cinema’s reliance on the lover as a narrative fulcrum.
