Anonymous said: recommendations for lesbian movies not starring white women/girls? i think i need to branch out and love myself
- saving face - two chinese american women (thiS MOVIE IS MY FAVORITE I LOVE IT SO MUCH)
- pariah - black american woman
- mosquita y mari - brown chicanas
- i can’t think straight - palestinian-jordanian woman and indian-british woman - i just watched this and was squealing the whole time
ppl just reminded me of/recommend these ones too:
- yes or no - thai women, very silly movie!
- the world unseen - indian-south african women
i haven’t seen any of these yet so i can’t vouch for their quality but:
- blue - japanese film abt teenage lesbians!!
- butterfly (hu die) - hong kong film based on the taiwanese novel the mark of the butterfly
- nina’s heavenly delights - takes place in the uk, featuring a cast w/ a lot of indian-british characters although one of the protags is white
- fire - indian women
- if she grows up gay - black american mother talks abt raising her child w/ her lesbian lover (cw: there’s a lot of discussion of rape in this film from what i’ve heard)
- the watermelon woman - 1st feature film written by a black lesbian! black american woman (features camille paglia so be careful bc she’s horrible)
