Queer and Now: Representation in American Film
MetadataShow full metadata
Great strides have been made in the past few decades in the way of Queer representation on television, but films fall inexplicably short. This project will consist of two parts, a written historical analysis and a short film. The written section will focus on an analysis of Queer representation in American film and its effect on society as well as discuss what better representation might look like in the future. The film portion will take an intimate look at the effect of representation (or lack thereof) on an individual’s identity. Ultimately, this thesis will establish that more comprehensive and intersectional Queer representation in film will be beneficial for Queer individuals, the Queer community, and society at large.
