Out filmmaker Sini Anderson was one of the originators of the three-decade strong traveling queer literary tour Sister Spit. Alongside Michelle Tea, Sini (who was 19 at the time) read poetry at their weekly open mic in San Francisco, having just relocated to the west coast from Chicago. Although she’s no longer involved with SS, Sini said she loves Michelle and has fond memories of being part of the troupe. Sini is also behind what some are calling one of the most feminist documentaries ever made.
