This introductory explains the theme of this book, which is about French queer cinema. The book aims to document forms of contemporary queer representation through coverage of auteur film, pornography, and DIY digital video. It charts the emergence of a radical, DIY digital video culture, combining queer theory, transgender activism, and lesbian pornography. This is the first study of the cultural formation and critical reception of contemporary queer-authored and queer-themed film and video.
