"Kathleen Hanna, lead singer of the punk band Bikini Kill and dance-punk trio Le Tigre, rose to national attention as a reluctant leader but never-shy voice of the 1990s riot grrrl movement. She became a cultural lightning rod with her outspoken feminism, and in 2005, when Hanna stopped shouting, fans wondered why. In The Punk Singer, documentarian Sini Anderson finds the answer to that question while taking viewers on a fascinating tour through twenty years of archival footage and intimate interviews with Hanna and her friends and collaborators. A screening of The Punk Singer will be followed by a conversation with Hanna, who will talk about feminism, illness, love and much more." - Visions & Voices Event Description
