We are so excited to announce the online release of our 3 minute Loading Docs documentary, Asian Men Talk About Sex!
Whether it be the nerdy best friend, silent kung-fu master or the tech wiz of the office, Asian men are desexualized at every turn - it's rare to see Asian men on screen just being themselves, let alone as sexual beings. We interview 8 Asian men of different ethnicities, ages and orientations to challenge stereotypes and lift the lid on taboos.
Funny, surprising, intimate and wild - much like sex - these are their candid experiences, perspectives and stories on sex, love and dating.
A huge thanks to all our supporters on boosted, and the talented team behind the film, and especially to our incredible talent!
Let's start talking.

Announcing our fresh script for August:
"I saw a soup being made.That’s right, I saw a moment of fire in each and every one of you. And we are going build that fire. We’re going to build that fire and we’re going to cook that soup and we are going to serve that soup."
Asian Arts Engagement Crew is a satirical comedy about a group of corporate-hippie Asians trying to change the world by engaging more Asians in the arts…one powerpoint presentation at a time.
Sam Wang's new script in development takes its lead from TV's Community, forcing a rag tag group of Asian misfits to work together in a university funded “Let’s engage Asians in the Arts” committee.
Directed by Alice Canton and presented by a cast of eight Asian New Zealand performers, this is a brand new laugh-out-loud comedy you wont want to miss!
Join us and give feedback on this work as it debuts in NZ in our fee reading!
