Retro Reviewing: “Watermelon Woman”

on

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.
