‘Deja View’ – “The Watermelon Woman” (1996)

This week, host Rachael Weinberg sits down with Melanie Mitchell to chat about the film “The Watermelon Woman.” The two discuss Afro-queer themes and identities within the film, the importance of highlighting forgotten figures and the situation of this film concerning other queer pictures historically. They also bring up the state of new queer cinema and the lack of color that it has presented.
