Episode 22: With David Bakum about the queer gaze in cinema, trans identity and activism

David is not only a participant of DialoguePerspectives, but also a fellow of the Young Islam Conference, a board member of Keshet Germany, pre-viewer at the Giornate degli Autori (Mostra del Cinema di Venezia), an activist and filmmaker.

In our latest podcast episode, our hosts Whitney, Neta-Paulina and Henri talked to David about his passion for film and learned a lot about his approach to this specific art and media form.

David is currently writing his bachelor’s thesis on the “queer gaze” in film, in which he is developing his own definition of the term. In this context, they also talked about queer and trans identities, the chances and risks of “queer trends” and mainstream media.

˝The programme makes possible something that is all too rare in our society these days: speaking and having discussions across borders, not about each other, but with each other. That can be a hard slog at times, but at the same time the format makes space for follow-up questions and deeper conversations that are only possible through trust on all sides.
