1986, 20:30 minutes, colour, English
Chinese Characters examines the ambiguous relationship between gay Asian men and white gay porn. Through fantasy voice overs, staged interviews and humourous re-enactments of scenes from Joe Gage porn classics, the tape forces viewers to question their own narrow definitions of what constitutes gay desire.
