Abstract: Globalisation has come to signify a whole new set of practices, ideas, and trends. Most scholars agree that globalization has been responsible for some of the major transformations in the structures of media production, representation and audience reception, creating strong demarcations between local and global, mainstream and independent, national and transnational cinemas. Where national cinema perpetuates hegemonic discourses in its narrative, global productions on the other hand, are seen contesting those points of view and thereby producing a new confrontational culture of cinema. My aim in this thesis is to question the legitimacy of this strong oppositional relationship between the local and the global by illustrating how in the case of lesbian representation, there is in fact a constant interaction between the two forces making their relationship rather dialectic.
