New Queer Cinema
The Director's CutBook - 2013
B. Ruby Rich designated a brand new genre, the New Queer Cinema (NQC), in her groundbreaking article in the 'Village Voice' in 1992. This movement in film and video was intensely political and aesthetically innovative, made possible by the debut of the camcorder, and driven initially by outrage over the unchecked spread of AIDS. The genre has grown to include an entire generation of queer artists, filmmakers, and activists. As a critic, curator, journalist, and scholar, Rich has been inextricably linked to the New Queer Cinema from its inception. This volume presents her new thoughts on the topic, as well as bringing together the best of her writing on the NQC.
