Dykes, Camera, Action!

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. The featured filmmakers and others share moving and often hilarious stories from their lives and discuss how they've expressed queer identity through film. The film covers the history of queer cinema from the early days as a marginalized sub-culture, to the 1990s which saw the rise of New Queer Cinema, up to the present.
