1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on October 21, 2011
Format: DVD
Simple and straightforward, 1997's "Lavender Limelight" is a brief series of interviews with seven prominent lesbian filmmakers of that era. Each lady spends about seven to eight minutes discussing their art and films in detail. I found the presentation informative and entertaining, and for a feature that lasted less than an hour--it was a decent portrait at the process and thought that drives independent cinema. The fact that the participants were lesbians was secondary to the fact that they were artists creating personal stories. Perhaps the most notable inclusions were Maria Maggenti (The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love), Cheryl Dunye (The Watermelon Woman), Rose Troche (Go Fish) and Jennie Livingston (Paris is Burning). However, this piece was shot in 1997 and so it lacks the contemporary commentary on what is going on in the film world today. KGHarris, 10/11.
