“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.”
i-D Magazine

“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.
