“New Queer Cinema: New Politics?” will revisit the terrain of the New Queer Cinema movement of the early 1990s in the context of our contemporary sociopolitical order, in which unprecedented legal rights are accompanied by a resurgence of lethal violence. This lecture will feature film clips and investigate the legacy of the movement in the hope of enabling us to imagine cinematic responses retooled for the cultural challenges of a new historical moment, a moment in need of its own landmark energy, invention, and inspiration.
