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.

˝DialoguePerspectives offers a unique change of perspective! The programme allows you to really grapple with current and highly societally relevant questions, to reflect on your own identity, and to get to know the diversity of European identities. I am very grateful for the intensive personal discussion and encounters, and the great amount of food for thought that has stuck with me long past the seminars.
