SPECIAL EVENT: As part of the Classic, Camp and Cult: Queer Film weekend at the V&A watch El diputado (The Deputy) (1978 Eloy de la Iglesia / Spain). 110 minutes.
Sex and politics collide in this tale of forbidden love, blackmail and murder. Set up by the secret police to compromise a prominent left-wing politician in the post-Franco transition to democracy, a teenage hustler finds himself falling in love with the man he must betray.
