Celebrated in accounts of the American indie heyday of the 1990s through the 2000s, Killer Films is headed by the equally feted partnership of producers Christine Vachon and Pam Koffler. Drawing on interviews and other primary source material, White seeks integrates the story of Killer as a butch-lesbian woman’s company into the history of feminist filmmaking. This history includes not only the New Queer Cinema but trailblazing lesbian and transgender features such as Go Fish (1994), High Art (1998) and Boys Don’t Cry (1999) and ‘women’s films’ made by women (Mary Harron) and queer men (Todd Haynes).

Keywords:   Killer Films, Christine Vachon, Pam Koffler, queer cinema, lesbian cinema, women’s film
