Q&A with Ray Yeung, Jake Choi, and James Chen

In this evocative tale of love, identity, and cultural collision, director Ray Yeung invites us into the world of Ryan Fu (Jake Choi), a gay Chinese American fashion stylist who has spent a lifetime evading his heritage. When tasked with styling Ning (James Chen), a seemingly straight actor from Beijing, Ryan is forced to confront the roots he has sought to escape. Their journey through the fashion world and cultural differences uncovers an unsuspected but profound connection. When Ning’s sexuality is threatened by a Chinese tabloid, Ryan faces a heart-wrenching choice between love and his hard-won identity. Front Cover beautifully captures the nuances of the immigrant experience with tender performances and insightful direction. It explores the struggle for authenticity in a world demanding conformity. Yeung’s storytelling skillfully weaves themes of love and acceptance that linger on long after the final frame.
