Rebel Dykes18

Directed by 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 influence the discussion around LGBTQ+ rights 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.

Reviews

‘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

Our screening on Monday 13th December will be introduced by the organisers of Oxford Pride.

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
