Queering Palestine: Piercing Eytan Fox's Imagined Bubble with Sharif Waked's Chic Point
Camera Obscura, 2012, v. 27, no. 2, pp. 154-160
The author addresses the construction of male homosexuality in Eytan Fox's 2006 feature film "The Bubble" and contrasts it with the presentation in artist Sharif Waked's 2003 short film "Chic Point". Looking at the tensions between Palestinian and Israeli masculinity and homosexual desire, the author constructs narrative about the dualities of representing Palestinian queerness.
