  1. Beautiful, Su! I love all your work.

    Anybody reading should really check out Su Friedrich’s amazing personal and experimental auto-ethnographies. They are so beautiful and completely original. Su is not only one of the greatest LGBTQ+ filmmakers, she is one of the greatest experimental filmmakers, hands down.
