The Rebel Dykes

Rebel Dykes at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 12 March 2017, from £4.00 - Book now

This queer-punk documentary is in post-production, and HOME will screen the work-in-progress cut which sold-out at BFI Flare in March 2016.
 
Created by a Manchester-based queer film crew, Rebel Dykes tells the story of a bunch of kick-ass women from London in the post-punk 1980s. The Rebel Dykes challenged norms ahead of the international riot grrrl movement, and the film features women’s punk music, animation, archive material and recreated footage.
 
The film will be followed by a showcase of incendiary poetry and performance put together by For Books’ Sake, featuring blisteringly bold and brilliant queer women writers from across the UK. Expect exciting, powerful spoken word that celebrates sexuality, rebellion and revolution, featuring Majikle, author of Margaret Thatcher Made Me an SM Dyke; internationally renowned poet, playwright and educator Sophia Walker, author of Opposite the Tourbus (Burning Eye Books); and Manchester literary luminary and dark fiction darling Rosie Garland, author of numerous poetry collections and novels The Palace of Curiosities, Vixen and The Night Brother (forthcoming from Borough Press), compered by For Books’ Sake founder Jane Bradley
