Editorial Reviews

BloodSisters is an important, and over-looked piece of feminist history, a feature-length documentary about the political activities and sexual choices of the San Francisco lesbian S&M community. This community is a highly organized group of women who interact through an intense exchange of physical body play, master/slave relationships, and a commitment to political activism. Featuring interviews with several gender-bending leaders of the scene including Pat Califia, (now Patrick Califia) an author and activist who's collection of erotic fiction Macho Sluts broke open the field of lesbian erotica; Skeeter, a young British ex-pat who has been part of the SF leatherdyke scene for several years as a performer and fetish gear maker; and Queen Cougar, an African-American activist and titleholder of the 1993 Ms San Francisco Leather contest. By following these women and cutting between their personal lives, political activities and candid interviews, BloodSisters illuminates the intelligence behind the sensation; providing an in-depth picture of the leather S&M community as a progressive grass-roots organization that challenges fixed ideas of gender identity and fights against discrimination as sexual outlaws within the queer community. Through their own words, we will hear about the serious business that goes on in this group of women trying to better understand themselves and better the community at the same time.
