In his latest visual exploration of global queer nightlife, director Samuel Douek pulls back the veil on another city that never seems to sleep: Hong Kong.

World banking capital by day, deliciously seedy urban playground by night, Hong Kong comes alive after dark with a relatively open and supportive queer scene that belies the repressive attitudes and policies of mainland China.

Through interviews and kaleidoscopic club footage, Hong Kong Nights depicts a scene that remains vibrant and inclusive—even in the face of anxiety about the city's imminent absorption into mainland China and the implications that will have for the LGBTQ community.

Press play above, and revel in previous installments of Douek’s Nights series in London, Tel Aviv, and Los Angeles.
