Asian Studs Nightmare

1994, 6 min, color, sound

Asian Studs Nightmare examines the racial politics operating behind the hit U.S. television dating show "STUDS." Fulbeck narrates, recalling fictional nightmares of Asian male identity, over a multi-layered visual of footage from the actual "STUDS" show and examples of Asian male stereotypes. Fulbeck reveals the pervasive racial hierarchies and taboos depicted in mass media and questions their relation to interracial dating patterns and minority status in the United States.
