Cheryl Dunye: Why We Need to Change the Way Queer Stories Are Told

Cheryl Dunye is a pioneering queer filmmaker. She talks about the enduring legacy of her film, The Watermelon Woman (celebrating its 20th anniversary), and directing sex scenes with brown bodies, why she’s no longer interested in making the compromises necessary to be a commercial filmmaker. She also talks about supporting more films by and about queer people of color and the significance of undocumented queer history.
