The story of 12-year-old Lou, a girl who wins a rock throwing contest and is horrified to discover that her best friend is taking an interest in earrings and boys, is interwoven with hilarious recollections of adult lesbians.
The 1997 season included only two films, but both packed the house. The award-winning Hide and Seek and A Litany for Survival: The Life and Work of Audre Lorde expanded the language of the documentary, and offered nuanced treatments of subject matter that resonated powerfully with the audience. Graphic designer Tricia Amato took over the task of flyer creation, and the homemade collages of the first few seasons gave way to a more professional look.
Epic portrait of the eloquent, award-winning Black lesbian poet, mother and warrior Audre Lorde.
