What was life like for gay women living in California in the 1940s, '50s, and '60s? The HomoFiles (working title) a feature-length documentary, sparked by the research of humanities scholar, Dr. Marie Cartie examines the central role played by lesbian bars in the formation of culture and community and how it served a "sacred" function to a population of outcasts, sinners, and criminals. The documentary includes interviews of self-identified gay women, archival photos and footage, and animation to tell their stories. Through their coming out in that period and claiming the bar as public space, we see they were some of the earliest activists in the fight for gay rights, that their contributions are perhaps the most courageous forms of LGBTQ activism, and that their lives that had been marginalized for so long, have a dignity and integrity that deserve honor and a place in the light. And like the disappearance of the lesbian bar in almost all the major cities in the US, these stories are disappearing with a population that is aging out, and it is critical they be documented and shared.

This movie blew me away; however not the first time I saw it, I had to watch it twice to truly appreciate the message and the power of this film. Maybe I wasn't fully paying attention or maybe I was too young at the time but I am so glad that I watched it again.

Was much better than I expected. Enjoyed it immensely. I’ve already watched it twice in less than a week.

Some people said the plot was complicated and difficult to follow. We totally disagree, my wife and daughter thought the plot was easy to follow and they liked the way the story developed and loved the ending.

Most compact, most mature and best done in very aspects, and perhaps it's the best movie from Marie Cartier.
