Dykes, Camera, Action!


Would you like to take a trip down memory lane to the films that made your little lesbian soul jump with joy in the 1980s and 1990s? Or are you unacquainted with the history of lesbian cinema and would like to learn more? Dykes, Camera, Action! will satisfy all your needs through the testimonies of the pioneers of American feminist and lesbian cinema, interspersed with numerous film previews. And all that at a fast and fresh tempo. From experimental filmmaker and Princeton professor Su Friedrich, to a legend of feminist film, Barbara Hammer – one of the first female directors who focused on lesbian topics in the 1970s. And besides Rose Troche, the director-in-residence of The L Word series and Go Fish, we will also meet Cheryl Dunye and Vicky Du, who concentrate on the issues of African American and Asian lesbians and the position of women. And iconic films such as But I’m a Cheerleader aren’t left out either.
