For every significant social movement in society, there is an equally significant story behind it. Fabulous documents one such story; the plight of queer cinema, and its movement from inception in the bedroom of a teenage boy, to controversy, to niche screening, breakthrough into the mainstream and finally worldwide acclaim with films such as Monster, Brokeback Mountain and Boys Don’t Cry.

Not only is queer film thoroughly covered in Fabulous, but also queer directors, and their feelings on the movement of gay cinema throughout the last 60 years.

An effective blend of documentary q & a with notable queer directors such as John Cameron Mitchell (Shortbus), Gus Van Sant (Elephant), Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain), John Waters (A Dirty Shame) and Gregg Araki (Mysterious Skin), interspersed with footage from the world’s most renowned queer films (Boys Don’t Cry, Mysterious Skin, Brokeback Mountain, But I’m a Cheerleader, The Incredibly True Story of 2 Girls In Love, Paris Is Burning), makes Fabulous both interesting and informative.

On the agenda is the rise of gay cinema, coming out, the change in depiction of gay characters, queer cinema stalwart’s feelings on straight actors playing gay characters, AIDS depiction and discussion in queer cinema and the future direction of the genre.A must-see for members of any sexual denomination for its intimate portraiture and insight into the struggles, frustrations, discriminations and triumphs faced by the active members of the queer cinema.
