Five Lesbian Shorts

"Lesbian Nation" is a collection of five lesbian films that is both entertaining and thought provoking.
"Carmelita Tropicana" is about a Latina performance artist who is mugged one night after her gig by a thief carrying a knife. The next day she is arrested at a demonstration with anti-abortion protesters and she, Orchid, her animated friend and Sophia, her uptight sister are arrested. She is put in a cell with another woman who just happens to be the person who mugged her the night before. Relationships develop between the two pair of women and among the four of them and they all go through changes during their time in jail.
"Lavender Limelight" looks at successful Lesbian film directors and goes behind the scenes with them. We see Jenny Livingston, Monika Treut, Cheryl Dunye, Maria Magnetti, Rose Troche, Su Freidrich and Heather Mac Donald.
"Playing the Part" is the story of Mitch and her girlfriend Chat who does not know that he is gay. Cat is off to London after graduation and Mitch thinks about her family a great deal. She decides to tell them during the winter break from school and she wonders how they will react.
"Little Women in Transit" is about a family and three sisters, Dana, Jenny and Lisa. Jenny is son to become a seventh grader. The three sisters begin teasing each other and Jen bears the worst of the teasing. She debates whether to defend herself or not.
