The 'Watermelon Woman' was the name given to a beautiful yet elusive black actress from the 1930s. Why was this her only billing? It is a mystery that perplexes Cheryl, a young black filmmaker based in Philadelphia, so she sets out to solve it by making a documentary about this forgotten star. Her research takes her to the depths of a terrifying 'lesbian archive' and to the heights of academia, with the irrepressible Camille Paglia giving an impromptu lecture on the hidden meaning of watermelons.
