Part of the program

For our monthly spotlight on overlooked works of American independent cinema, we’re focusing on ’90s DIY maverick Sarah Jacobson, who left behind a bracing body of intimate documentaries, riotous music videos, and a breakthrough feature that is still remarkable for its frank and nuanced portrait of female sexuality.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Sarah Jacobson Film Grant, offered annually to one or more female, transgender, genderqueer, or gender non-conforming filmmakers.
