A brilliant and refreshing story of UK post-punk lesbian culture, told by those who lived it. Rebel Dykes 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 London. 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.

This is an extraordinarily privileged glimpse into a bygone world by those who not only lived out their politics with heartfelt conviction, but lived to tell the tale.

This screening is supported by Reclaim the Frame and will be followed by a Q&A with Michelle Mangan (Rebel Dykes executive producer), Lydia Honeybone (Co-Founder at Glasgow Artists' Moving Image Studios SCIO) and Siobhan Fahey (Rebel Dykes producer).
