Summary/Abstract: The text draws critical attention to the place of queer cinema in the world: what might or could the world mean to queers; and what does queer cinema mean for the world? By bringing the reader to the intersection of queer politics and world cinema; it asks both how queer films construct ways of being in the world and what the political value is of the worlds that queer cinema creates. Cinema is always involved in world making; and queerness promises to knock off kilter conventional epistemologies. Thinking queerness together with cinema thus has a potential to reconfigure dominant modes of worlding. The authors use the term “worlding” to describe queer cinema’s ongoing process of constructing worlds; a process that is active and incomplete; and does not presuppose a settled cartography. A critical awareness of the global frame has challenged and revised the traditional rubrics of film studies and Western models of gender and sexuality.
