Spanish Queer Cinema

Chris Perriam

Edinburgh University Press

The chapter considers some of the ways in which watching moving images is only one part of a wider cultural and creative participation in the construction of Spanish queer experience and identity. It considers the interconnectedness of different forms of accessing LGBTQ images and stories. It shows how some of the scriptwriters of the films discussed have parallel careers as novelists, journalists, or essayists, and have a queer following in their own right. It further maps the crossing from writing to film by exploring two queer Spanish biopics. The writers and exchanges between text and film discussed in this chapter contribute, it argues, to the production of a largely middlebrow queer culture in Spain and influence the ways that the films are conceived and consumed.

Keywords:   biopics, middlebrow, novelists, screen writers
