Tearing The Veil

Ronit Bezalel

1990, 11:45 minutes, colour, English


"What is a lesbian? If you think it's a woman with short, cropped hair, no make-up, wearing men's pants - probably boxer shorts at that - then I'm not a lesbian."

This upbeat documentary examines lesbian stereotypes. Four women, including the videomaker, reflect on myths associated with being a lesbian. This video is a celebration of being gay. The soundtrack is provided by Kwanzaa, a multicultural women's drumming group from Burlington, Vermont.
