This film is about a man of Chinese descent who usually loves Caucasians, falling in love with another man who is also of Chinese descent. It has got party scenes and drag scenes to lighten the film up, and it also has serious moments such as identity introspection.I really like the scene where the girl meditates with Monty, it really is hilarious. The colonial brainwashing really did make a lot of people feel inferior and made them lose their identity.While speaking with Asian-American fitness activist Kevin Kreider in an interview, Lin outlined the stigma that comes with being Asian, especially being an Asian male.
I'm also creating a companion project, "They're All So Beautiful," an online video series and forum to discuss the nuances of race, romance and "yellow fever."Though the concept dates back centuries, dating Asian women, or, more accurately, the idea of dating Asian women, has officially gone mainstream.
While I spoke to a lot of aging white men, I also spoke with young hipsters, black men and Latinos who desire Asian women.
I heard from Asian, Asian-American and many other women about their encounters with this so-called "yellow fever." I even interviewed a Chinese woman who's a yenta for men seeking Asian wives in Silicon Valley. Around 500 BCE, Confucius outlined relationships in which wives looked up to their husbands in perfect harmony.
Throughout all this, a common thread emerged: myths and misconceptions about Asian women are as strongly held as ever. Times have changed, but the myth that Asian women make doting and dutiful wives still persists.
Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey has said himself that race played a role in their decision to pass on Lin during the draft.
