Queer Cinema in Europe by Robin Griffiths

Book Description

This book draws together a number of accessible and insightful essays that explore, for the first time, the questions and conflicts of gender, sexuality and identity in contemporary European cinema. Contributors discuss the varying deployments of lesbian, gay and queer representation to re-define and deconstruct notions of national identity and culture from within a unique and diverse European context. A number of films, directors and genres will be explored for their relevance to new understandings of gender and sexuality at the end of the millennium. Topics include: - Queer French cinema: Francois Ozon, Andre Techine and Sebastien Lifshitz - Teenage prostitution, Prague, and the films of Wiktor Grodecki - 'Savage Nights' and European AIDS cinema - Greek masculinity and the films of Constantinos Giannaris - Fassbinder, Pasolini and Visconti - 'Dyke' cinema and Monika Treut - Queer German cinema - Sexuality, Spain and the cinema of Pedro Almodovar - Queer Britannia: The films of Derek Jarman The book specifically focuses upon queer European cinema, and is an invaluable research resource for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, lecturers and independent researchers in departments of Film and Media Studies, Gender Studies, Lesbian and Gay Studies, Cultural Studies and European Studies.
