Running Red Lights (Canada, 2004, Video, 6 min) is made possible through the 2004 Queer Youth Digital Video Project at Inside Out, Toronto's Lesbian and Gay Film and Video Festival and Charles Street Video. The video follows a young and queer Asian rocker who rampages through Toronto's suburbs on his way to a concert and discovers love along the way. It aims to represent the political complexities inherent in queer Asian youth cultures and provides a unique glimpse into one corner of suburban Toronto life.
