Movie Info

Lesbians didn't always get to see themselves on screen. But between Stonewall, the feminist movement, and the experimental cinema of the 1970s, they built visibility, and transformed the social imagination about queerness. Filmmakers Barbara Hammer, Su Friedrich, Rose Troche, Cheryl Dunye, Yoruba Richen, Desiree Akhavan, Vicky Du, film critic B. Ruby Rich, Jenni Olson, and others share moving and often hilarious stories from their lives and discuss how they've expressed queer identity through film.

  • At just over an hour, Dykes, Camera, Action! covers a key segment of film history that's relevant to far more than LGBTQ audiences. It's a bracing look at culture at large, and the importance of telling everyone's stories.

  • An ideal introduction to a world of lesbian cinema that was as bold and unique in its creation as it was deeply interested in representation.

  • It's a must for film students, and casual film fans who haven't given the subject much thought before are likely to find that it opens their eyes to new ways of looking at the cinema they know and love.
