23.7.2020 - Rebel Dykes Film Club ONLINE

REBEL DYKES HISTORY PROJECT CiC
REBEL DYKES FILM CLUB The Hunger (1983)
Time & Location
23 Jul, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
Zoom event

The Hunger is the 1983 Tony Scott film described by Roger Ebert as “an agonizingly bad vampire movie”. The film has yet acquired cult status, not least because of its leading cast of Bowie, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon. . Some praised its bisexual and lesbian themes while others just found it erotically-charged and good-looking. Stevie Nicks recently cited it as one of her favourite moments of Bowie’s career, declaring it “creepy and strange and amazingly beautiful.”
Special Guest Rosie Garland

DIRECTOR: TONY SCOTT CAST: CATHERINE DENEUVE, DAVID BOWIE, SUSAN SARANDON1983 / 97min / 35mm
A lush vampire romance with sex and style to spare, much of it provided by stars Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie as a couple of posh, centuries-old nightclubbing New York bloodsuckers who, when one begins to show the first signs of aging, recruit assistance from Susan Sarandon’s geriatrics researcher, then find themselves in a very, very attractive throuple. Yes, that’s “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” artists Bauhaus in a brief cameo.

The Film Club runs from 7pm - 10pm (ish) BST. After a bit of an intro, you'll stream the film in your own home - the cost is around £3.50. Some films we will be sharing are free to stream.

Then we'll get together sometime around 9.30pm BST for something special.
We are delighted to welcome special guest Rosie Garland aka Rosie Lugosi!

Film Club is for dykes and allies of all genders, all generations (over 18).

Rebel Dykes & For Books’ Sake at Wonder Women Festival

4:00-6.00pm
From £4

Created by a Manchester-based queer film crew, Rebel Dykes tells the story of a bunch of kick-ass women from London in the post-punk 1980s. The Rebel Dykes challenged norms ahead of the international riot grrrl movement, and the film features women’s punk music, animation, archive material and recreated footage. This queer-punk documentary is in post-production, and HOME will screen the work-in-progress cut which sold-out at BFI Flare in March 2016.
This will be followed by a showcase of incendiary poetry and performance put together by For Books’ Sake, featuring blisteringly bold and brilliant queer women writers from across the UK. Expect exciting, powerful spoken word that celebrates sexuality, rebellion and revolution, featuring Majikle, author of Margaret Thatcher Made Me an SM Dyke; internationally renowned poet, playwright and educator Sophia Walker, author of Opposite the Tourbus (Burning Eye Books); and Manchester literary luminary and dark fiction darling Rosie Garland, author of numerous poetry collections and novels The Palace of Curiosities, Vixen and The Night Brother (forthcoming from Borough Press), compered by For Books’ Sake founder Jane Bradley.
