“A woefully slept-on ’90s movie. A lesbian love story. An NYC-set coming-of-ager. A riot grrrl movie … so out-of-the-blue brilliant you wonder why it’s not talked about in the same breath as KIDS or THE BASKETBALL DIARIES.”
“A sophisticated visual and narrative piece that pinpoints some of the universal emotional ephemera of youthful friendships — gay, straight, bi, or otherwise.”
—The Austin Chronicle
Producer Dolly Hall will join us for an introduction and Q&A following the film.
Originally conceived by director Alex Sichel as a riot-grrrl expose that would “fuse the do-it-yourself ethic of punk rock with in-your-face feminism,” this sadly underseen touchstone dips you straight into the scene — with its soundtrack featuring the likes of Babes in Toyland, Sleater-Kinney, The Amps, and Helium — and out into the world of two teenage girls discovering girls, boys, and themselves in Hell’s Kitchen. Screening in 35mm.
