Forgiveness Day

Derek Ho
👋 Filmmaker attending

Thirty years ago, 13-year-old Derek Ho outed his older brother Jeremiah to their traditional Singaporean Chinese family — and changed their lives forever. In the years that passed, Derek too came to identify as queer and returned home to seek forgiveness for what he did. Forgiveness Day is a portrait of love and trauma, where two brothers find themselves navigating the space between trust, faith and healing.
