Who are we? As part of ReelAsian's See Yourself Here: Online Video Contest, we decided to make a short film introducing our band! Asian representation is so important in the media, especially now with the growing popularity of music acts such as Hayley Kiyoko, 88 Rising, Awkwafina, and the recent box office successes of films like Crazy Rich Asians and TV shows like Kim's Convenience. More than ever are we proud to be who we are, and more than ever do we strive to recognize, validate, and treasure the Asian stories that continually shape our global society.
cutsleeve is a queer East Asian female rock band based in Toronto.
To our fans and followers: thank you for all your support and love. We hope you like this video! 🌈 .
Directed & produced by Amanda Ann-Min Wong
