Meet the Team Behind Lesbian Film 'Tsuyako' at The Betty Tonight!

Meet the Team Behind Lesbian Film 'Tsuyako' at The Betty Tonight!

'Tsuyako' is a film about what happens when an old lesbian lover surprises a now obedient wife and loving mother, Tsuyako, she must choose between her duties as a woman and the promise of freedom, while struggling to maintain the Japanese traditions of culture and respect of her family. 'Tsuyako' is a USC MFA thesis film that will be shooting in Osaka, Japan this Spring.

During Post-War Japan, Tsuyako lives a demanding life as a mill factory worker, obedient wife, and loving mother. When an old female lover, Yoshie, pays a surprise visit, she reignites a passion in Tsuyako - one that Tsuyako has repressed herself from feeling again, and has kept hidden since their separation. After Yoshie witnesses how Tsuyako’s new family mistreats her, she begs Tsuyako to leave with her to Tokyo, to live the life that they had always dreamt of together. Tsuyako must choose between her duties as a woman and the promise of freedom, while struggling to maintain the Japanese traditions of culture and respect of her family.

Tsuyako is a USC MFA thesis film that will be shooting in Osaka, Japan this Spring. Because filming will take place out of the country, the filmmakers cannot use the school equipment and resources normally available to students. This Wednesday February 10, at The Betty at Fubar in West Hollywood, come out to party, eat, drink and meet the team behind the film, all while helping to raise funds to make Tsuyako a reality!

For more information on the film and other ways to help out, visit the Tsuyako site.
