Example text

Again in this scene, Dunye brings together the linked issues of racial politics and the challenge of recapturing historical truth. June urges Cheryl to “make our history,” an idiosyncratic formulation that underscores that history’s status as a transmutable entity to be “made,” not discovered. ” At this point in the film’s diegesis, Cheryl explicitly links the end of her love affair with Diana, the unsteady nature of her friendship with Tamara, and, most important, the conclusion of her project of historical recovery.

How could you, Irene? ” As the camera moves disconcertingly from the bed and a tight shot of Cheryl and Diana deep kissing to the race film, we see the disapproving Fae character admonish Irene: “You’re a nogood lying tramp; that’s what you are. ” “Why can’t I be happy fitting into their world? God made me this color and he did it for a reason,” Irene insists, desperately. The scene ends with Fae slapping Irene’s face in disgust. Since the “race” film is intercut with the scene of lovemaking, Dunye surely wants viewers to experience the discordance between the foreground images of interracial passion set against a backdrop of intense racial tension.
