1998 | Death/Dying / Sexuality / Women's Studies | 12m | USA
Directors: Yau Ching

“The pleasure of this film is the cultural references, metaphoric whisper,s and openly interpretive tale. Through gentle, erotic gestures and suggestions, I’m Starving evokes a whirlwind of passionate lesbian hunger and desire.” —Lucretia Knapp, Dyke TV
