Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Vilified by conservatives in Congress, defended by major newspapers, and celebrated by audiences and festivals around the world as one of the most provocative, humorous and important filmmakers of our time, Cheryl Dunye practically invented a new form of cinema - call it the 'Dunyementary.' Using a mixture of narrative and documentary techniques, the 'Dunyementary' challenges social and cultural norms through a sharply funny and reflexive lens. Never scholarly or didactic, Dunye appreciates the value in entertaining viewers.

Her acclaimed first feature THE WATERMELON WOMAN (1996) introduced Cheryl to wider audiences, who quickly fell in love with her self depreciating and insightful wit - not to mention the great casts she assembled (including herself). But what came before this modern-day classic? Presented here for the first time on DVD are the films that started it all - the early works which gave birth to an extraordinary and original filmmaking talent. Made on miniscule budgets, they represent the first chapter of the Cheryl Dunye oeuvre.

Review

Dunye's delightful early short films - her 'Dunyementaries' - fuse humor, intelligence and drama in the world of urban, young black lesbians as they make their way through the murky waters of love, friendship and dating. --Outfest Los Angeles

The lesbian Spike Lee...she's hysterically funny. --Newsday

Talent and open-heartedness. --New York Times

'Interesting' is most definitely the best way I would chose to describe this video compilation of Cheryl Dunye's earliest works.
