'En El Futuro' Wins Queer Lion Prize at Venice Film Festival

Futuro

Argentinian director Mauro Andrizzi's film En El Futuro has won the Venice Film Festival's Queer Lion prize.

The Hollywood Reporter:

"En el futuro," which screened in the festival's re-vamped Orizzonti sidebar, won the Queer Lion prize over more heralded nominees including Darren Aronofsky's thriller "Black Swan," which was the festival's opening film. The Queer Lion jury, which selects a winner based on the way the film portrays gay characters, said the film won the prize for "portraying and displaying, in short episodes, spontaneous and solid love, regardless of whether it is straight or gay."

  1. I have spoken before about how demeaning and stigmatizing it is to classify films as "queer". And how insulting, to praise a a movie for normalizing love between human beings and then give it an award named after a hateful anti-Gay slur! Why is it that, when it comes to LesBiGay subject matter, so many in the arts community behave like imbeciles?
