About this Event

Arnika Fuhrmann, Associate Professor of Southeast Asian Studies, Cornell University

"For Tomorrow for Tonight": Thai Cinema and the Expansion of Queer Politics

Professor Fuhrmann, who consults with the Asian Film Festival Berlin in addition to her academic work, explores new work in Thai cinema in which queerness lies not only in the cross-gender, interspecies, supernatural, and geontological elements of the stories and films, but also in the affective and aesthetic approaches that characterize this cinema. In what ways does this cinema draw on Buddhism to present political critique and represent queerness in innovative ways?
