Abstract

The entirety of Cock Fight takes place at a checkpoint – a physical and symbolic space where, by definition, identities are ‘checked’ and thereby established and articulated. The article argues that this cinematic location invites four distinct constructions of masculinity, while commenting on gender discourses in the pre-second intifada Israeli society.
