Synopsis

June 23rd Fringe! is back with Genesis and we can't think of a better film to hail our return to real life, in-the-flesh cinema than Rebel Dykes. It's the kick-ass lesbian documentary of the year. Taking the punk aesthetic to the max, Rebel Dykes cuts and pastes archive footage, animation, and interviews to successfully recreate the look and feel of London in the '80s. The film centres a group of sex-positive, lesbian, anarchist squatters living at the edges of the '80s' feminist movement: Greenham Common, BDSM club nights, anti-Thatcher demos, and direct action on Clause 28. Rebel Dykes provides a glimpse of a London where it was possible to truly live outside the system.


The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the films makers, and participants. Hosted by Kai Fiáin and Martha Magerston from Fringe! Expect a deep down conversation centered on dyke culture, past and present.
