The Art of Resistance: LGBT Cinema in Sub-Saharan Africa

Research and writing of a book on the role of LGBT cinema in Sub-Saharan Africa.

This book manuscript examines the history of LGBT cinema in sub-Saharan Africa and discusses the multi-layered forms of resistance present in the films. The project examines how films track the psychological effects of homophobic violence as well as modes of survival and loving that persist despite that violence and that are, in fact, often forged as a resistance to it.
