Yellow Using mixed filming formats, photography and cinematic styling, LA-based director Anthony Pham explores the significance of the word ‘yellow’—a pejorative term used to describe people of East or Southeast Asian descent. Pham’s short documentary collects different interpretations of the racial slur from a diverse cross-section of Asian personalities, which include director and actor Justin Chon, femdom practitioner Mistress Lucy Sweetkill, visual artist and NOWNESS contributor Andrew Thomas Huang, and model and transgender advocate Geena Rocero. “Yellow manifests the power of this traditionally racial term,” says the director, “it reveals personal struggles with Asian stereotypes, and questions, as well as goes in search of, a space for ownership and disruption.” The film is poetic, fluid and engenders intimacy between the audience and the central figures who candidly speak about their personal experiences and reconciliation with—or total rejection of—the term ‘yellow’. “This film sends out a universal message to all who are seeking a glitch in the dominant narrative,” says Pham, “A space between full submission and subversion, and an unapologetic way to celebrate fluidity and freedom.”

Deep Clean London-based director David Wilson, known for his music video work for Arctic Monkeys, Tame Impala, and Christine and the Queens, celebrates self-pleasure and the joys of objectophilia with an exquisite dance routine set to the global smash hit song “Sexual” by Neiked and Dyo. “We live in a time where queer aesthetics and the rainbow pride flag are marketed and sold like candy,” says Wilson, whose project is an adaption of an illustrious stage performance from Blackpool-born theater-maker Harry Clayton-Wright, who makes amorous advances towards the well-oiled handle of a vintage vacuum cleaner “It feels like the fluffy, fun parts of our community are peppering TV, film and commercials, but it’s ultra-selective as they’re only choosing areas that are palatable to a heteronormative audience,” says Wilson, who combines the charming color palette of a Wes Anderson movie with Freddie Mercury’s iconic vacuum cleaner dance number to boldly reclaim queer culture. “Five locations turned us down and insurance companies wouldn’t touch us because of the explicit sexual content,” says Clayton-Wright, who stars in the project.
