"Funny, adventurous wonderful!" -New York Times
Cheryl, a young black woman working in a video store, is making a documentary about an obscure black actress from the 1930's. When she discovers that the actress (known as "the Watermelon Woman") had a white lesbian lover, Cheryl just happens to fall in love with a very cute white woman herself!
Attacked by conservative Congressmen, winner of multiple audience awards in major film festivals, and lavishly praised by audiences for being charming and courageous, this startlingly fresh debut is "a wonderfully inventive journey though the annals of film history, African American culture, dyke attitudes, race relations, and the mysteries of lesbian attraction. Did I mention this is a comedy, too?" -B. Ruby Rich, San Francisco Bay Guardian
