Feminist Disruptions in Postcolonial Film
In Chapter 1, the reader is introduced to challenging and disrupting postcolonial films such as Carlos Reygadas’ Post Tenebras Lux and Claire Denis’ No Fear, No Die and Beau Travail. These films are exposed as significant in their disruptive feminism, which is informed by a global perspective and an aesthetic of opposition. After exposing many critical misreadings of first world critics, I demonstrate the manner in which these films disrupt received notions of masculinity, class, and race, along with sexuality. White colonial hegemony is exposed as malignant and dangerous to men and women, especially those at the bottom of the spectrum of the class system. The films are celebrated as overlooked masterworks of feminist aesthetics ofpostcolonial opposition.
