The Watermelon Woman – The Review Show 258

We watched the 1996 movie The Watermelon Woman, the first feature film directed by a Black lesbian. Cheryl is an aspiring filmmaker working in a video store and trying to make a documentary about a Black actress from the 1930s and 40s credited only as “The Watermelon Woman.” As she works to uncover this woman’s identity, she discovers a queer history that echoes her own personal romantic life.
