Southern Pride is a follow up documentary to Small Town Gay Bar in 2006 by Malcolm Ingram.
This morning I had my eyes opened to the most amazing debut documentary film by Jason Barker.
Before there were Riot Grrls, before there were Queer Activists, there were the Rebel Dykes who lived in London in the 1980s; the world has never been quite the same since.
A feature length documentary is in production which will tell their story.
Wine, Women & Friends is a documentary from filmmaker Fiona Cunningham-Reid about two women winemakers — Jo and Carol — who make 10,000 bottles of wine annually under the name Domaine Les Cabotines in Collias, a small village in the Languedoc region in the south of France, who started their own business wine making in 2006 without any prior knowledge of making wine.
Crocadyke Dundee is a documentary that covers the life of Dawn O’Donnell from Director Fiona Cunningham-Reid (Feed them to the Cannibals and Thin Ice). It includes lots of footage as far back as the 60s. It is an interesting look into a bygone era and a big name in lesbian history.
Focusing on on small number of couples and singles, telling their stories, this documentary opens the door to lives otherwise ignored in modern storytelling. Experiences of coming out, living life in the rural closet, relationships that have stood the test of time, despite challenges from families and local communities, isolation and heartbreak - stories familiar to us all, yet within a context not often explored.
This film follows the lives of two Country Singing, comedy lesbian twins, whose closeness and free spirited approach to life is something to be admired.
