One of the smaller and relatively new DVD publishers, First Run Features, has just sent some information our way regarding an upcoming title, slated for a November 9 release. All fans of the Warrior Princess Xena will be pleased to hear that “First Run Features” will release the early films of Xena-actress Lucy Lawless.
Before she became a television star, Lucy Lawless starred in two short films from New Zealand, both of which will find its way on this DVD release. Peach, a steamy lesbian film in which Lucy plays a tow-truck driver who seduces a young Maori woman, and Bitter song, her first film role, in which she plays a young nurse who helps a troubled girl recuperate in the hospital.
On the same disc you will find Lavender Limelight a documentary that introduces audiences to a number of lesbian filmmakers, exploring subjects like sexual identity, growing up gay, Hollywood vs. Indie, and others.
The disc will be released on November 9 and will carry a suggested retail price of $29.95.
