Cheryl Dunye’s feature debut sees the director in the role of herself, confirming the confessional style that characterizes her filmography. Determined to make a film about the beautiful 1930s black actress known as “The Watermelon Woman,” Cheryl ventures to discover her real name and her life, which surprisingly includes a romance with Martha Page, one of the rare Hollywood female records.
The film features protagonists of the American lesbian scene such as Guinevere Turner, Sarah Schulman, Camille Paglia.
