Dykes, Camera, Action
September 21 @ 7:45 pm - 8:54 pm$13.25
SHORT: An intimate portrayal of Angela Wilson, a butcher and owner of Avedano’s Holly Park Market located in San Francisco. The film ebbs between her identity, values and the currently shifting community of the the bay area. This is one woman’s tale of a dream, and the reality of living it.
SHORT: In the wake of dyke bars and spaces closing, a lonely queer in San Francisco sits outside of the now closed Lexington Bar and follows a trail of signs, motorcycle babes, femme dommes, and leather daddies to the Last Dyke Bar on Earth.
FEATURE: 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. DYKES, CAMERA, ACTION! is a history of queer cinema from the women who made it happen.
