 Cheryl Dunye Biography

Cheryl Dunye emerged as part of the 1990's "queer new wave" of young film and video makers. Often set within a personal or domestic context, her stories foreground issues of race, sexuality and identity. Dunye's work is defined by her distinctive narrative voice, a fresh docu-fiction hybrid that has since been dubbed "Dunyementary" style.

Dunye has made over 15 films, including Mommy Is Coming, The Owls, My Baby's Daddy and HBO's Stranger Inside, which garnered her an Independent Spirit Award nomination in the category of Best Director. Her debut feature film, The Watermelon Woman, was awarded the Teddy at the Berlinale in 1996, and it was recently restored by Outfest's UCLA Legacy Project to commemorate the film's 20th anniversary.

Dunye has received numerous accolades and honors for her work, which include a 2016 Guggenheim Fellowship.

In 2017, Dunye signed on to direct two episodes of Ava Duvernay's "Queen Sugar" for OWN TV. Since then, her work as an episodic director has skyrocketed to include a slate of incredible shows such as "The Chi," "Claws," "David Makes Man," "The Fosters" and "Dear White People."
