Shorts: The Gayz

Fri 29 September 2017

‘The gaze’ is a term used in visual media to mean the way viewers look at images and onscreen characters look at each other, traditionally in critique of male-centred and patriarchal movie- making. So what happens when the act of looking in films is queered? Featuring Campbell X’s new experimental short, DES!RE, foregrounding lust for masc AFAB people, The Naked Body, in which a director documents how people relate to nudity and their own body, and Harding & his camera, an ambiguous ‘love story’ told through the 1930s archive of a British archaeologist in Palestine.
