This is the first documentary about a Chinese American Lesbian. Kitty Tsui tells of her arrival as an immigrant to San Francisco and, amidst the anti-Vietnam war protests, finding her way to San Francisco State. She became one of the founding members of Unbound Feet, the first Asian American performance group now recognized as the catalyst that sparked the Asian Pacific feminist and lesbian movements. An award winning author, she has penned three books and been included in over eighty anthologies worldwide. She has a forthcoming book from Sinister Wisdom with new and old poems, and a reprint of Words of a Woman Who Breathes Fire, a Sapphic classic.
