Private moments have surprise consequences in “Listen,” Liang Hu’s harrowing short.
In the 2013 film, a British government employee spends his time monitoring civilian phone calls. When he overhears a series of emotional conversations between a gay man and his mother, the worker is inspired to mend fences in his own life.
Hu based elements of “Listen,” which won acclaim on the festival circuit, on his own coming out.
