Mama Gloria

Luchina Fisher’s documentary is an empathic and engaging portrait of Gloria Allen. Once a mainstay in the drag ball culture on Chicago’s South Side in the 1960s, Gloria would persevere through traumatic violence to emerge as a leader and matriarch in her community that gives unconditional love. Her creation of a charm school for young transgender people would inspire a hit play, CHARM, chronicling her journey as a Black, septuagenarian, trans icon and elder.

My Name is Baghdad

Baghdad isn’t like other girls; she wears her hair short and pants high while skateboarding through the working-class favelas of São Paulo. She lives in a house populated with equally strong-willed and free-spirited women and her world is torn asunder when she runs into a group of female skaters. Caru Alves de Souza’s film won Berlin's Crystal Bear for its story of strength, sisterhood and love that doesn’t shy away from violence, sexism and discrimination. AGES 14+

Rebel Dykes

US Premiere! A punk mash-up of archival footage, animation, and interviews, this documentary chronicles the outlaw dyke culture of the UK in the 1980s. A collective of artists, activists, sex workers, and outcasts, REBEL DYKES retells the pioneering struggles of sex-positive, BDSM leather dykes as they not only fought against a conservative government and religious oppression, but other lesbians who became transphobic “sex police.” This is an unapologetic history about the dykes who paved the way for our rights today.
