Comedy 1998 27 mins
Director: Raymond Yeung
A fun and astute look at the self-imposed prejudices of a gay Chinese-British man. Anglophile Monty is looking for his perfect man, but only white British men need apply. That is until the attractive Jai Ming moves in next door and the two men seem to connect. Can Monty overcome his prejudices? Writer-director Raymond Yeung's debut short is a light-hearted comedy of manners.
