No Asians...It’s just not my thing                 16min

The film explores the feelings of both joy and pain associated
with the feeling of love at first sight done through limited
dialog and using acting and music to tell the story. The
subtext of the film is how Asian men are often viewed within
American gay culture as something less-then or inferior to
other races and therefore undesirable. Discrimination within
discriminated communities is just as 'bad' as anywhere else
in society if not worse, something most people would not
expect from those who know what it is like to be despised.
This subtext of the film adds to the strong emotions of the
main theme by adding the extra layer of low self esteem
which in and of itself is a real problem within the gay
community because of being gay. Finally, the film explores
questions without answers so that the audience can think
about these important concepts of love, race and culture.

Meth and Murder in P-town -
Isn’t that what poetry is about?                 80min

'Perhaps the way to deal with the adversary is confront him in
ourselves. We have to fight for little bit of health. We have to
make our living and dieing important again. and the living
and dieing of others. Isn't that what poerty is about?' Stanley
Kunitz, US Poet Laureate This is a story of two gay men who
didn't think they were important and a town that is important
to the gay community, Provincetown. The story goes on to
investigate how homophobia and heterosexism influencees
the legal system and justice. Like lemonade it is a tart and
bitter story but also refreshing.
