Dykes, Camera, Action!

DYKES-CAMERA-ACTION-3

Caroline Berler, 2018, USA, 58 min.

“I’m going to make a film about a girl who falls in love with a woman.” A radical idea in 1984 from Su Friedrich, who used that inspiration to make Damned If You Don’t. This beautifully constructed documentary is more than a review of lesbian filmmaking. It is a lesson in lesbian history, uncovering the layers of what that history truly represents. It’s a history of women, speaking in their own voices, exploring sexuality and culture outside of the context, and in spite of, conventions in film. Breakthrough filmmakers like Barbara Hammer (Super Dyke), Su Friedrich, Rose Troché and Guinevere Turner (Go Fish), Janet Bause (Lesbian Avengers), Cheryl Dunye (Stranger Inside, Watermelon Woman) are featured along with young filmmakers like Yoruba Richen (The New Black) and Desiree Akhavan (The Miseducation of Cameron Post).
