Un Chant D'Amour (A Song of Love)
Credits:Directed by Jean Genet. ( Silent, BW, 16mm)

As the only fimic example of Gernet's transposition of ideas and writing into images, Un Chant D'Amour may be categorized as a 'film poem' - an avant -garde work comparable to the films of Jean Cocteau, Kenneth Anger Maya Deren, and Nagisa Oshima. Its lyrical evocation of homosexual passion and romance is regarded as one of the most intensely physical films made. Historically limited in its availablility due to the social stigma of its sexually explicit material, much silence and confusion surrounded this hidden treasure; thus it has become the most famous gay short film in European history
