Title: The Great Identity Swindle
2008; 1:00

Exploring what it means to be Br-Asian, while deconstructing the identity myth through poetry and comics, using his rhyming couplets and snappy editing from director Videowallah. An MTV generation piece of poetry, full of attitude, bluster and visual flair.
