Where Lies the Homo? (1998)

Film details


Where Lies the Homo is a film diary that explores the construction of gay identities though an an analysis of media clips and coming-out tales. The narrative's focus is on demystifying stereotypical representations of queerness in film while offering a personal view of growing up queer in a heterosexist culture. From Disney to underground gay cinema, from Hollywood divas to grainy home movies, this experimental collage juxtaposes and reinterprets many of our iconic images of sexuality and family.
