FREE SNEAK PREVIEW: The Punk Singer (Kathleen Hanna in person!)

Schedule permitting, Kathleen Hanna will be here in person for a Q&A after the film! Plus, DJ Tuna will be here to spin tunes before the show! Kathleen Hanna, lead singer of the punk band Bikini Kill and dance-punk trio Le Tigre, rose to national attention as the reluctant-but-never-shy voice of the Riot Grrrl movement. Becoming both one of the most famously outspoken feminist icons of her generation and a cultural lightning rod, Kathleen garnered a list of critics who wished she would just shut up — and a legion of fans who hoped she never would. So, in 2005, when Hanna stopped shouting, many wondered why. Through 20 years of archival footage and intimate interviews with Kathleen, The Punk Singer takes viewers on a fascinating tour of contemporary music, offering a never-before-seen view into the life of this fearless leader.
