Lucy Thane was born in The Angel of North London in the Summer of Love 1967. She studied History and Film in Norwich and Sheffield but in 1993 was lured away by the bright lights of Punk Rock Club toilets and excited fifteen year olds in Brownie costumes to make a film about the U.S. Riot Girl band Bikini Kill. This film took me to New York, and to San Francisco where she lived for 5 years. There she made films such as She’s Real, Worse than Queer in 1997, which she toured across the U.S. and Canada in 1996. From 1994 to 1998 worked as a Staff member, Curator and Editor at Cinema/Gallery/ Cultural Hub, Artists Television Access. She taught at the Academy of Art College and performed in and curated LivePerformance/ Screenings Shoot the Women first.
