A sexy, gritty, ride through the dyke community of late 1980s London with a rebel band of outcast women depicted through animation, archival footage, and interviews.
82 min | Feature | REBEL DYKES | United Kingdom
Created by a fully female/non-binary film crew, Rebel Dykes is an ass-kicking documentary that follows a tight-knit group of friends who became artists, performers, musicians and activists in London. A heady mash-up of animation, archive footage and interviews tells the story of a radical scene of squatters, BDSM nightclubs, anti-Thatcher rallies, AIDS protests, and the fierce ties of chosen family. This is an extraordinarily glimpse into a world inhabited by those who lived out their politics with heartfelt conviction and lived to tell the tale.
