Riot Grrrl "The Punk Singer" (+ Q&A with Kathleen Hanna)

  • May 14, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • ICA

'I’m your worst nightmare come to life, ’cause I’m not going to shut up.'

For more than 15 years, Kathleen Hanna was as good as her word. As frontwoman of the band Bikini Kill, she became a leading light of both the Pacific Northwest scene and the Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s, combining powerful lyrics, a blistering vocal style and a take-no-prisoners attitude that still tears up the screen in archive concert footage.

When the band imploded in 1997, Hanna continued in new creative directions. Then all of a sudden, in 2005, the unthinkable happened: she shut up. This documentary unravels the reason for her silence, and showcases her latest work. With Riot Grrrl tactics and sensibilities making global headlines today thanks to Pussy Riot, this is a timely tribute to the integrity and unquenchable rage of an essential activist and artist.

Kathleen Hanna will be answering questions about the documentary after the screening.

I strongly recommend buying tickets in advance.  They can be bought (here).

We will plan to go for a drink after the event to discuss the documentary.
