White Gypsies

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter focuses on how race and queer thinking intersected in the critical recycling of folklórica and the cuplé aesthetics during the catastrophic changes of Spain’s transition to democracy, particularly the moment of 1978. It examines the confluence of race and queerness by exploring the documentary Ocaña: Retrat intermitent, and the fictional film Un hombre llamado Flor de Otoño. These films recycle the performative modes, redeploying the constructed rural community, intermittent performances, and utopian sensibility of the folkloric musicals within a new queer landscape, in which a radically racialized and sexualized otherness speaks truth to power.

Keywords:   race, queerness, folklórica, cuplé aesthetics, Ocaña: Retrat intermitent, Un hombre llamado Flor de Otoño
