Created in 24 hours for Somesuch’s Intern Duties challenge, this eponymous music video to the classic love ballad “Unchained Melody” by The Righteous Brothers indulges in the mission of queering conventional narratives of love and heartbreak. Romantic pleasure and angst, alongside expressions of loneliness, despair, affection, and nostalgia, are all recycled and re-portrayed in the memories of a love that once existed between two Chinese diasporic queers. This piece also acts as a tender homage to Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai’s contribution to illustrating deeply affective Chinese stories, whilst prodding at his apparent inability to center non-male characters with emotional depth.
