Cold Star (2011)

by Diego Costa

This German music video/short film illustrates the fluidity and oceanic core quality of Desire as seen from a Queer (Theory) position. The swimming pool invites even, or perhaps especially, the most normative (-acting/-looking) folks to jump into queerness, incited by one, and then various, figures of normative resistance. Can peer-pressure be (positively) deployed through queerness as a mode of counter-repressive invitation?

Cold Star

'A boy experiences new desires while watching a man at an indoor swimming pool. Forced up the diving platform by a rowdy gang, he receives unexpected help.'
