French Queer Cinema by Nick Rees-Roberts
Book DescriptionFrench Queer Cinema looks at queer self-representation in contemporary auteur film and experimental video in France. Whilst there is growing research on representations of queer sexualities in France, this is the first comprehensive study of the cultural formation and critical reception of contemporary queer film and video. French Queer Cinema addresses the socio-political context informing both queer DIY video and independent gay cinema, including films such as Patrice Chereau's Ceux qui m'aiment prendront le train, Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau's Drole de Felix, Francois Ozon's Le Temps qui reste and Andre Techine's Les Temoins. Taking up the recent Anglo-American attention to queer migration, the book looks at gay fantasies of Arab (beur) men, as well as beur self-representation in Europe's fastest-selling gay DV porn production Citebeur. Further chapters cover transgender dissent, and the effects of AIDS and loss on the formation of gay identities. Key Features *Provides a full, up-to-date account of the formation, reception and setting for contemporary queer film and video in France. *Situates cinematic representations of migration, social exclusion and queer sexualities in the context of recent repressive legislation on sex work and immigration. *Covers the work of less well-known directors such as Christophe Honore, Sebastien Lifshitz and Gael Morel.
