Bloodsisters: Leather, Dykes, and Sadomasochism
Dir. Michelle Handelman, 1995 | 70 minutes

Join Brisbane Queer Film Festival, Sissy Screens, and the IMA for a 25th anniversary screening of Bloodsisters: Leather, Dykes, and Sadomasochism.

In this film eight self-described leather dykes tell their stories about participating in a subculture cast off by its own immediate ally, the larger lesbian community. From pushy bottoms to macho femmes, Bloodsisters is an A-Z documentary guide that takes an in-depth look at the San Francisco leatherdyke scene during the mid-nineties, shattering assumptions about gender and lesbian sexuality. Michelle Handelman’s film doesn’t describe the bounds of permissible fantasy in the women’s leather community; rather it broadens the discussion about private expressions of eroticism and their political implications.

Unclassified 18+ 
This film contains sexual content, nudity, coarse language, adult themes, and discussions about consent.

“The queer outlaws of the San Francisco leather scene take center stage in the hottest history lesson you’ll have all year” —NewFest
