  Lesbian cinema 4 June 2004  
Image: Do I love you?
Why is it so difficult to get films with a lesbian theme into production?

Films like The Killing of Sister George, Go Fish, or Boys Don't Cry made a big impact, but successful films made by lesbians or depicting lesbian relationships are nonetheless few and far between. 

If you're a film-maker who happens to be a lesbian, is it best to keep quiet about it? As the National Film Theatre begins a season of lesbian cinema, Martha speaks to Briony Hanson, the season's programmer and to film-maker, Lisa Gornick.
