A Bit Of Scarlet. The Queer characters in film
Before the video essays that now swarm the internet became the trend, there was this little gem. A Bit Of Scarlet compiles a vast archive of LGBTI characters from British post-war cinema to reflect on the representation of this community in film.
The caricaturization of these characters is a trait that is evident in this collage, although immediately noticeable is an evolution of the role of the queer character to achieve a contemporary complexity.
