Rebel Dykes – Film showing and discussion
February 4, 2022, 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
A thrilling documentary about south London’s 80s dyke culture, told by those who lived it. The film 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 Brixton, Tulse Hill, Peckham and beyond. 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.
Directed by Harri Shanahan and Sîan Williams, film running time 82 minutes. Showing followed by an open discussion on continuing Lambeth’s own dyke history-telling with Atalanta Kernick and Karen Fisch from the film.
