“What is Riot Grrrl?” filmmaker Lucy Thane continually asks the fans, zinesters, and musicians profiled in her 1993 film IT CHANGED MY LIFE. By that point the term had taken on a ubiquitous, undefinable life of its own: derided by the media, twisted by its detractors, and worshiped by an increasingly large cultural movement of young women in the US and UK. While originally coined by Olympia, WA-based zinesters and musicians Tobi Vail (Bikini Kill) and Molly Neuman (Bratmobile) to describe the core network of politically-minded punk women in Olympia and DC, Riot Grrrl in its truest sense describes any do-it-yourself creative outlet of feminist fury: from cut-and-paste zines to punk shows to the grainy, politically-charged Pixelvision and 16mm visual subversions of the underground female and queer filmmakers of the era.More info See more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
