Film: Rebel Dykes (18)

Dir. Harri Shanahan, Siân A. Williams, 2021, UK, 89 mins.

Rebel Dykes follows a tight-knit group of friends who met at Greenham Common peace camp and went on to become artists, performers, musicians and activists in London. A heady mash-up of animation, archive footage and interviews tells the story of a radical scene: squatters, BDSM nightclubs, anti-Thatcher rallies, protests demanding action around AIDS and the fierce ties of chosen family. This is an extraordinarily privileged glimpse into a bygone world by those who not only lived out their politics with heartfelt conviction but lived to tell the tale.

The screening on Tuesday 15th is a special Reclaim The Frame screening which includes a pre-recorded introduction of 21 minutes with Yvonne Taylor, Siobhan Fahey, Harri Shanahan, Siân A. Williams and Ellyot Eva Ben-Ezzer (Composer and Music Supervisor) hosted by Melanie Iredale.

The mission of Reclaim the Frame is to re-tell the story of cinema by drawing ever greater audiences to films by women & non-binary creatives, re-claiming cinema as a truer reflection of the world we live in.
