You Got the Look

Filmmaker Aari Parreñas seperately spoke with friends all across the country about what it's like to date as an Asian person. Robin Ray Panganiban, Merilou Salazar, and Justin David have never met but have all endured so many similar or identical racist transgressions and micro aggressions every day. Together, they discuss the direct correlation of fetishization, hypersexulization and emasculation with misrepresentation, or a lack thereof altogether, in various media.
