the Chinatown Basketball Tournament in New York
City, August 1997 when the video maker stumbled upon
by chance. Season of the Boys is
about the myth of a "boy-season" that all men have
been waiting for, which comes just once and only for
a brief moment.
The video documents the Asian boys who can jump,
or at least pass the ball. Living between Black
and White Americans, the yellow boys attempts to
negotiate a space for themselves.
Mixing unlikely subjects of athletics,
voyeuristic desire and poetic expression, Season
of the Boys explores how the culture
of youth and beauty is constructed and influences
us from an intimate viewpoint of the video maker.
