Global queer film

| 1 Comment

I would like to explore the topic of transnational queer film using Deepa Mehta's film, Fire. It critiques India's patriarchal, post-colonial society through its portrayal of lesbianism.
This film tackles gay dysphoria, inauthenticity, and subjectivity. I also think global representations of gay identities relation to imperialism would be interesting to talk about. Is anyone remotely interested? Other ideas/questions/whatnot relating to global queer film would be rad!!

I think that covering a global topic would be useful since that's a facet that we haven't covered at all in class yet. Would you like to be in my group?
