Rebel Dykes

With its doodled visuals, talking head interviews from people at the heart of the movement and delightfully fuzzy archival footage of the squats, nightclubs, cabaret shows and AIDS protests that housed a vibrant subculture, this is a lovingly-made documentary about rebels, by rebels, co-directed by Manchester-based duo Siân A. Williams and Harri Shanahan.

Synopsis

Telling the unheard story of a community of lesbian women who met through art, music, politics and sex and went on to form a women’s rights movement that protested against Thatcher’s anti-LGBTQ+ policies and the rampant homophobia of the era.
