Pride On Screen: 25 Essential Queer Films

Pride On Screen

 

01 Un Chant Damour
Un Chant d'Amour
Jean Genet (1950)

Set in a prison, and long banned for some full-frontal action witnessed by a voyeuristic guard, this 26-minute meditation on desire is Genet’s only film. It’s devoid of dialogue, but its bittersweet imagery is all you need, conveying the forbidden bond between two star-crossed, neighboring inmates, whose only consummation of lust comes in dreams and cigarette smoke shared through a straw.
