Biography

Video maker, visual artist. Hong Kong-bred, U. of T.-trained Chow was an Xtra! prodigy coverboy in 2003, the year he produced three intimate queer video shorts on themes of cultural and sexual identity adjustments. The most ambitious, Banana Boy (2003, 7), successfully integrated English with Cantonese and personal family melodrama with Tienanmen Square massacre footage, all culminating in a coming out that is like bursting out of a bathtub full of water where you can’t breathe.
