Dykes, Camera, Action!
This feature-length documentary covers the history of queer cinema from the early days as a marginalised sub-culture, to the 1990s which saw the rise of New Queer Cinema, up to the present. The film examines the ways that women directors have contributed to this genre and emphasises the role that the media plays in representation of sexuality and gender, underscoring the power that film has to shape our perceptions of one another. Visually, this documentary comes to life on screen through compelling and intimate original interviews intercut with emotionally-charged archival footage, photographs, ephemera, inspired music, and film clips.
