Rebel Dykes

Dir. Harri Shanahan & Siân A. Williams. UK, 2021. 1h 29m. Starring Seija Hirstio, De La Grace Volcano, Roz Kaveney.

Rabble-rousing documentary about a group of friends who met at Greenham Common peace camp in the 1980s who went on to change their world by becoming artists, musicians and activists. A heady mash-up of animation, unseen archive footage, and interviews telling the story of a radical scene of squatters, BDSM nightclub revellers, and anti-Thatcher protestors.

‘By capturing the culture of fetish, party and riot, feminism, sex and politics, this unique blend of styles offers a fitting representation of a punk subculture that gave ‘80s queer and feminist activism its vibrancy’ ★★★★ Marina Ashioti, Little White Lies

‘What keeps Harri Shanahan and Siân A. Williams’s documentary throbbing is its archival, thematic richness’ Ela Bittencourt, BFI Sight and Sound Magazine
