by Christina Stojanova

Splice Magazine, Summer 2009, pp. 7-9

Stojanova reviews David Geiss' docudrama Stubblejumper (2008), a portrait of prairie queer-activist Doug Wilson (1950-1952). Thomas Waugh, and Richard Dyer's individual contributions to a theoretical framework of queer cinema are used to discuss the film. The article also explores Geiss' approach to film making,, describing it as hybrid for his mixing of documentary material and reenactments.
