Abstract

This article reviews Belaïd’s short film and provides a close analysis to the representation of queerness in Algerian cinema. Drawing upon Kaya Davies Hayon’s study investigating the question of the body in Maghrebi films (2017), this article pays particular attention to the complexity of corporeal portrayal in Algerian cinema, the perception of sexual and gender identities in its society, and the understanding of transgender identity in a predominantly masculine environment.
