The View From Here: Conversations with Gay and Lesbian Filmmakers
The View From Here: Conversations with Gay and Lesbian Filmmakers by Matthew Hays
The history of gay and lesbian cinema is a storied one, and one that has become much larger in the post-Brokeback Mountain era. But the history of gay and lesbian filmmakers is a story all its own. In The View from Here, some of the world's leading queer film directors and screenwriters - some mainstream, others who work defiantly from the margins - speak passionately and eloquently about the medium, and the challenges they face overcoming the demands of the Hollywood studio system and "the market" to create films that are entertaining, engaging, and truthful.
