Description

In collaboration with Penn Cinema Studies and International House Philadelphia

The Watermelon Woman
(dir. Cheryl Dunye, 1996, 90 min.)

This “fake documentary” stars the director as a fictionalized version of herself. Dunye plays a Black lesbian filmmaker who, captivated by an elusive, queer 1930s black film actress, decides to make a film about her.
