B. Ruby Rich Events this Spring in San Francisco and New York

Rich S13 AuthorPhotoIf you're in San Francisco or New York this spring catch B. Ruby Rich talking about her new book New Queer Cinema: The Director’s Cut. Rich designated a brand new genre, the New Queer Cinema (NQC), in her groundbreaking article in the Village Voice
in 1992. This movement in film and video was intensely political and
aesthetically innovative, made possible by the debut of the camcorder,
and driven initially by outrage over the unchecked spread of AIDS. The
genre has grown to include an entire generation of queer artists,
filmmakers, and activists. Rich has been inextricably linked to New
Queer Cinema from its inception. This volume presents brings together
the best of her writing on NQC along with her new thoughts on the topic.

John Waters has said "I thought I knew a lot about gay movie history until I read New Queer Cinema
and realized what a dunce I was. Ruby Rich has to be the friendliest
yet toughest voice of international queerdom writing today. She's sane,
funny, well-traveled, and her aesthetics go beyond dyke correctness into
a whole new world of fag-friendly feminist film fanaticism."
