L is for the way you look

Jean Carlomusto

1991, 24:00 minutes, colour, English


L Is For The Way You Look pieces together lesbian identity with whatever scraps of history and memory can be found. It is a visualization of the many different ways lesbians perceive what's important. The sighting of a well known celebrity at a women's event sparks a female bonding experience among those present. The news travels and everyone's got a different version. Anyone who's ever speculated about the sexuality of famous people can relate to this. More importantly, L Is For The Way You Look comments on the need to look beyond the TV for meaningful images of lesbians.
