In Janine, Dunye candidly tells the story of her high-school friendship with a white upper-middle class girl named Janine. Dunye discusses her struggle for acceptance in Janine's world, despite their racial and sexual-identity differences. Through direct address and visual metaphor, Dunye imparts the often painful process of searching for — and ultimately affirming — identity.
