They were and are brave people who tried to be authentic and faithful to what they perceived as their true identity. The "Filmmakers" issue contains brief portraits of movie directors from around the world: Esther Eng, Dorothy Arzner, Rose Troche, Campbell X, Dee Rees, Zero Chou, Chantal Ackerman, Cheryl Dunye, and Pratibha Parmar. "Here's to dykes making more movies. Let's go celebrate and watch them."
