CGiii Comment

This is a lovely piece of social history...it just needed a more inventive/creative way of telling it.

Kitty Tsui reading her story is just too simple an approach...more suited to radio/podcast than film.

The(ir) Blurb...

Kitty Tsui, Chinese American writer, poet, body builder, and lesbian activist, tells of her arrival as an immigrant to San Francisco and, amidst the anti-Vietnam war protests, finding her way to San Francisco State, which influenced her on her path as an activist and poet. In this first ever documentary about a Chinese American Lesbian, Tsui brings to life her coming of age in San Francisco in the 1970s, her challenges, and her continued rise to celebrity by being re-discovered by a whole new generation of Feminists.
