No Hop Sing, No Bruce Lee; What do you do when none of your heroes look like you?

Janice Tanaka and David Gallardo

1998, 31:56 minutes, colour/B&W, English


Silent, sex-less, obedient houseboys and mystic arts masters, are the popular images of Asian males propagated in this culture's mass media. Invisibility is the core element reflected in this single dimensional representation of Asian men.

Through the reflections and voices of Asian American men, we become privy to the manner in which racism affects their lives and personal identity.
