  • Ã’Beyond Asiaphilia looks at miscegenation, lust, Asian masculinity, and Hong Kong cinema. As a Chinese American kid raised in the California suburbs, I had limited contact with Asian role models. Now that I m smitten by Chow Yun-Fat s singular way with a gun, I ve fallen in love with Hong Kong movies. Through film clips, first-person narration and interviews with various Asian American males, Beyond Asiaphilia explores our culture s rapidly changing definition of masculinity, exoticism and power as they relate to race.
