Midnight Rising is an intimate portrait of London’s East and South East Asian clubbing community, a world in which the allure of raving, extravagance, and hyperpop becomes an affirmation of love, acceptance, and joy. This world-within-a-world is instantly familiar - filled with ambitions, desires, and yearnings that reflect the joy and resistance of today.
