A rabble-rousing story of post-punk 1980s London, Rebel Dykes follows a tight-knit group of friends who met at Greenham Common peace camp and became artists, performers, musicians and activists.

A heady mash-up of animation, rare archive footage and new interviews, this lovingly-crafted film tells the story of a radical scene: squatters, BDSM nightclubs, anti-Thatcher rallies, protests demanding action around AIDS and the fierce ties of chosen families.

Directed by Harri Shanahan and Siân A. Williams, Rebel Dykes is the riotous retelling of a near-forgotten moment of queer history.
