Many understand ‘queer’ as a synonym for LGBT+ identity. But, it is a notoriously slippery and stubbornly unfixed term. What does it mean to desire ‘queerly’ or otherwise? We invite you to explore this question through the films in this selection. All of these imagine new ways to realise love, from the utopic to queerly strange or, even, eerie.
