Older Wiser Lesbians
A funny, mysterious and humane generational anthem starring some of the most popular underground artists in Lesbian Cinema: Guinevere Turner (GO FISH, The L WORD, AMERICAN PSYCHO), V.S. Brodie (GO FISH), Lisa Gornick (TICK TOCK LULLABY) and Deak Evgenikos (The ITTY BITTY TITTY COMMITTEE).
The OWLS’ screenplay is by novelist Sarah Schulman and is based on a story by writer/director/professor Cheryl Dunye.
Raised in the shadow of “pathological lesbian” films like THE FOX, THE CHILDREN’S HOUR and THE KILLING OF SISTER GEORGE, the OWLs once embraced the utopian vision of Lesbian Nation. Now, approaching middle age, the revolution has eluded their dreams. Caught between a culture that still has no place for them, and a younger generation indifferent to their contributions, the OWLs face an emotionally complex set of circumstances that have yet to be compassionately and truthfully addressed.
