Film quote

'A heady mash-up of animation, archive footage and interviews tells the story of a radical scene: squatters, BDSM nightclubs, anti-Thatcher rallies, protests demanding action around AIDS and the fierce ties of chosen family. This is an extraordinarily privileged glimpse into a bygone world by those who not only lived out their politics with heartfelt conviction but lived to tell the tale.' JAY BERNARD, Programmer, BFI Flare 2021

Cost: Film: £8.60, £5.45 concessions, inclusive
