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.

This film will be preceded by a 20-minute short film, Flip of a Coin, directed by Trisha Thompson of the Lehigh Valley Film Crew. The film is about having to choose between love and money. Feeling the pressure of her psychopath boss, Bobbie must decide between her job and her wife, Beverly, who has dug in her heels and as far as she is concerned it’s her way or the highway.
