  • Filmed at the monthly "AsianXpress" in the 5ive Night Club in Toronto, the video is a documentary of the participants - young men negotiating their desire and identity in the margins of the gay world. On top of the hypnotic ambiance and the dreamy images of boys dancing, we read the dialogues and exchanges among the individuals. Seductive and utopic but possibly full of lies and deceit, Discopedia studies and spells out the language and the psychology of the club culture. Ho Tam says: "I have always wanted to do a Pop-up Video. And Discopedia is the closest and no budget version that I have come up with!"
