Queer Cinema and the Sense of Something Better

Academics: Sarahtalk presented by Elizabeth Venell, Ph.D. (Gender Studies)

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Mar. 9, 2023
Via Zoom
Open to the public
Registration Required

Modern paradigms of sexuality and visibility are nowhere more intertwined than in “queer cinema,” and in 2023, LGBTQ+ representation in film has never been more prevalent. Yet popular writing on queer cinema often laments the normalization of today’s proliferating images. Venell traces the origin and irony of this critical discontent, and reimagines the function of queer cinema from being a diagnostic tool to becoming a transformative one. Recent films in foreign horror comprise test cases for this new approach.
