Nova

Synopsis

Frank Yang and Nova Patra are two notorious Asian YouTubers who are hacking culture through the video medium drawing attention from millions with their often hyper-sexual content. 

This documentary follows them around and captures their conversations about sex, spirituality and content creation. They dive deep into unusual conversations about art, masturbation, cultural identity and more.

Frank Yang shocked the media in 2012 with his ‘Street Love' video where he had sex on a mattress in a public street.

Nova Patra followed suit in 2016 when her Pay-walled Twitch Porn was ripped and believed to be a “Twitch Fail” leading millions to believe she had accidentally masturbated live on Twitch.TV. 

The most interesting thing about them is their defiance of their cultural narratives and identities. While many have lost their identify in the stories the TV provides, these two continue to reject old forms of media and instead are determined to become the media.
