FtF: Female to Femme

FtF: Female to Femme, digital video documentary, 48 minutes, 2006. Dirs. Kami Chisholm and Elizabeth Stark. Distributed by Frameline.

FtF: Female to Femme imagines a world in which the journey toward femme was understood to be as radical as journeys to claim and inhabit other queer bodies. Envisioning more than it documents, this documentary celebrates dyke femme identities, combining farce and seduction with analysis and personal history. For years, femmes have forged community and created space for themselves out of edgy performance and authentic parody. FtF recognizes these strategies and builds them into an unforgettable sexy, funny and moving film.
