The Criterion Channel | Queersighted: The Ache of Desire

Featuring a conversation between critics Michael Koresky and Melissa Anderson

Queer cinema has existed nearly as long as the movies themselves, and Queersighted aims to bring attention to film history through a distinctly queer lens. Rather than provide a history of films featuring lesbian, gay, transgender, or bisexual characters and themes, this new series draws out the presence of a non-heteronormative, non-gender-binary cinema that has always existed alongside, parallel, or underneath the status quo. This first installment, The Ache of Desire, presents a range of movies about that longing feeling that is so specific to the queer experience and to queer cinema itself.
