Screen Test is a wry day-in-the-life of an Asian-Canadian actor and the convoluted process of "becoming Asian" during a casting session. This film exposes the exoticization of actors of colour from the performer's point-of-view. By exaggerating her own Asian-ness, she performs in "yellow face", subverting the process through exploiting and mocking the ignorance of those who get to define and direct the 'other'.

A French subtitled version is available.
