Retro Reviewing: “Watermelon Woman”

This week, retro reviewers Danielle and Rina welcome
Danae and Gambit (from the D.E.B.S. review)
to the fray in order to give proper due to Watermelon
Woman
.

The film is a very important classic, as it
represents the first movie about the African American
lesbian experience. And despite it’s association with
a certain film of the same era (Go Fish),
Watermelon Woman was a hit with all the reviewers. Everyone felt that the film tackled important issues
(including race and representation) while still
managing to be entertaining and original.
