FERRARI, Anderson; SOUZA, Marcos Lopes de  and  CASTRO, Roney Polato de. Doing and undoing gender in Billy Elliot. LTP [online]. 2018, vol.36, n.73, pp.51-67.  Epub July 24, 2019. ISSN 2317-0972.

Our interest in this article is to place thought under suspicion: why do we think what we think? How do our thoughts organize our actions in the world and our personal relationships? These questions are the focus of the problematizations that we have taken as a challenge from the film Billy Eliot, the story of a boy who insists on breaking the familiar tradition of boxing fighters to take a chance at the ballet. From this cinematographic drama we will discuss the construction of genders from the perspective of Judith Butler, that is, how the masculine can be understood within the project of doing and undoing gender.

Keywords : Gender; subjectification; education.
