    Director: Sharon Woodward

    Length: 45'

    ‘Thank You Skinhead Girl’ is a documentary which explores the filmmakers experience of being in care and becoming a skinhead girl during the late 70’s early 80’s.
    It gives insight into a sub-youth culture that has been one of the most misunderstood, of all the youth groups. The film shows the historical rise of the skinhead movement, the fashion, music and the gang structure in Oxfordshire UK at the time.
    Through the voice of the filmmaker we are taken into the personal reflections of that time, which shows a working class girl finding refuge within the skinhead movement. A place where she grew, survived, thrived and eventually learnt a very hard, uncomfortable lesson through violence.

    The film features music from Reggae legends the ‘Symarip’, Oxford Ska band The Inflatables and Welsh Oi! band The Oppressed.
    This film has been enabled by Screen South Community Projects Fund and OFVM – Film Oxford Production Equipment Award.
