  • This video explores the relationship between imagery and text within the context of the Asian experience in North America. In a playful and satirical manner, the video roams through past and present, from Chinese railroad labourers, to Hiroshima, to US involvement in the Korean War, to the arrival of the Boat People and Hong Kong money from the 1997 Crisis.
