ProjectGELB

Project Gelb is a documentary about the Asian male phenomena perceived in the media and gay culture and how it reflects from their childhood. “There was an obsession with my skin tone with a modelling agency that ordered me to stay out of the sun otherwise being too exotic would decrease my marketability, while being gay and Asian in the dating scene exposed me to some brutal truths that I was either fetishized or dismissed.”

Directed by Canadian-Filipino filmmaker Francis Luta.
