Representation of marginalized otherness (prostitution - homosexuality) through the Greek cinema of the period 1950-1970 (Master thesis)

Ψαρρή, Κωνσταντινιά/ Psarri, Constantinia

The cinematic representation is a form of narrative art, which takes us away from reality and at the same time places us in another reality, which may not concern us directly, introducing us to a part of the world of which we follow on. The cinematic lens uses images to represent and tell a story, whether it is a product of fiction or a real event. Since the 1960s, cinema has piqued the interest of the social sciences, and film has been studied as a product that reflects social reality. This interest focuses on the extraction and interpretation of information and data from visual documents related to people's daily lives, their way of thinking and their mentality. Through film illustration and analysis in the present study, many well-known and beloved film heroes are presented, who are called to play deviant behaviors, according to the stereotypes of the time. The space where all these figures are placed and moved is characterized as a margin. More specifically, through the Greek films of the period between 1950 - 1974, the portraits of homosexual men and prostitutes are created and analyzed, as well as their interaction with the accepted social models of the time and the historical conjunctures.
