EXPLORING GAY FILM AESTHETICS
Co-presented with Outfest [Spielberg Theatre] QUEER GAZING:
Whether it’s "lavender," "pink," gay or queer in visual and narrative design, homosexuality’s influence in cinema is now pretty much mainstream. But is there an actual "gay film aesthetic"? How have "homo-revisionist" readings of classic films added creative depth to gay cinema's foundation? Take a wild ride through everything from homoeroticism to the establishment of the queer POV called "The Gay Gaze" and rediscover queer cinema in more of its flamboyant glory. Thomas Ethan Harris instructs. Film clips will be used to inspire an open dialogue with the audience.
