Videomaker, producer, editor. York-trained, Toronto-based Sinclair has been a frequent collaborator with the Ian Jarvis-David Collins duo, and also with queer-friendly fellow York graduate Karen Kew, with whom he has frequently explored issues of Asian identity and sexuality. Their Chasing the Dragon (1993, 22) is a provocative experimental narrative about phone sex between a white man and a fantasy Asian transwoman Cherry, that symbolically merges exotic food discourse with sex fantasy; it’s followed by a talking heads forum by young Asian-Canadians, gay and straight, men and women, on orientalism and desire. Sinclair also edited Nancy Nicol’s epic Stand Together (2002), and has made several bread-and-butter music videos.
