Kathleen Hanna, lead singer of the punk band Bikini Kill and dance-punk trio Le Tigre, rose to attention as the reluctant but never shy voice of the 1990s' riot grrrl movement.
She became one of the most famously outspoken feminist icons, a cultural lightning rod. Her critics wished she would just shut-up, and her fans hoped she never would. So in 2005, when Hanna stopped shouting, many wondered why.
Through 20 years of archival footage and intimate interviews with Hanna, The Punk Singer takes viewers on a fascinating tour of contemporary music and offers a never-before-seen view into the life of this fearless leader.
A documentary relevant to the feminist movements in popular culture today featuring interviews with alt-rock royalty Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth), Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney), Joan Jett and more.
Director: Sini Anderson
With: Kathleen Hanna, Kim Gordon, Joan Jett.
Duration: 81 mins (plus a short introduction before the screening)
Certificate: 15, Into Film recommends 16 - 19yrs
We look forward to seeing you at the screening!
