Daisies / Don’t do Tricks / Skate Witches

Sunday, 14th August 2016, 00:00 to 00:00


Screening of three convention-breaking, gratifying films that spit at the norm’ and ‘high-five’ female social liberation.

Daisies

Daisies is an aesthetically and politically adventurous film that’s widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema. Věra Chytilová’s absurdist farce follows the misadventures of two brash young women. Believing the world to be “spoiled,” they embark on a series of pranks in which nothing—food, clothes, men, war—is taken seriously. 

 

Don’t Do Tricks

A trip down no tricks alley with a skateboarder who doesn’t do tricks. 

Watch artist / skateboarder Lady Lucy as she skates the righteous path around the streets of Bristol – and wonder at the hilarious encounters she has along the way. 


Skate Witches

“We’re the skate witches and we don’t take NO crap from NO one.” 

Punk rock auteur, Danny Plotnick shot his YouTube classic “Skate Witches” in one afternoon in 1986 on Super 8 film at a cost of $60. In it, a group of teenage female skatepunks (and their pet rats) terrorize boy skaters.
