This critical introduction to Blue is the Warmest Colour will delineate the relationship between contemporary queer cinema and the politics of representing explicit sex on-screen. The talk will also discuss the controversies Blue is the Warmest Color faced (and still does face), and why the male gaze debate is still so pertinent to the analysis of lesbian sex in cinema.
