OUT OF PRINT
The Bent Lens is the definitive guide to gay, lesbian and queer films currently available internationally. Over 1700 titles from 45 countries spanning gay and lesbian filmmaking from 1914 to the present day are represented. Comprising an A-Z listing of feature films, documentaries and short films, there are also articles by prominent writers that explore lesbians in film, traditions of gay film in Europe and the UK and how the gay identity is viewed and understood in non-Western cultures. Details of each work include writer, director, cast and crew, genre, year, running time, synopsis and distributor contact details. Each film is indexed by country, director and genre for easy cross-referencing. A comprehensive bibliography and a listing of gay and lesbian film festivals around the world are also included.
