After the prelude to the Lesbian Looks Spring 2019 season as co-sponsor of The Lavender Scare on January 20, LL is ready for the grand premiere of its 25th season! Come out and watch!
Dykes, Camera, Action! (Caroline Berler, 2018)
tells the story of how lesbians have built visibility on the screen since the 70’s. Filmmakers Barbara Hammer, Su Friedrich, Rose Troche, Cheryl Dunye, Yvonne Welbon, Yoruba Richen, Desiree Akhavan, Vicky Du, Jenni Olson, and others share moving and often hilarious stories from their lives and discuss how they’ve expressed queer identity through film. As film critic B. Ruby Rich says in the documentary’s trailer, “Filmmaking went hand in hand with activism. There really was a sense in which we were all trying to make it a new world.”
