The Criterion Channel | Queersighted: Turn the Gaze Around

Featuring a new conversation between guest programmer Michael Koresky and food and film writer Mayukh Sen

For the second installment of Queersighted, a series from Michael Koresky that views film history through a distinctly queer lens, we turn our sights to a handful of filmmakers—from Jean Cocteau to Cheryl Dunye—who have turned their gazes away from convention, using cinema to eroticize the unexpected and subvert objectification.
