Directed by Cheryl Dunye
1996, USA, 90 min

Re-released for its 20th anniversary in a pristine 2K HD restoration, The Watermelon Woman is the story of Cheryl (Cheryl Dunye), a twenty-something Black lesbian struggling to make a documentary about Fae Richards, a beautiful and elusive 1930s Black film actress popularly known as “The Watermelon Woman.” While uncovering the details of Fae’s life, Cheryl experiences an upheaval in her own. Each answer Cheryl discovers about the Watermelon Woman evokes a flurry of new questions about herself and her future.
