KWTF has observed International Women’s Day every year since our founding in 2011. This year we are screening The Punk Singer (thanks entirely to the leg work of Leilani Clark). The screening is Friday March 7th at the Arlene Francis Center, 99 Sixth Street in Santa Rosa. Doors open at 7pm, DJ Jewsy until 8:15 then the movie! We are asking a $10 to support KWTF, no one turned away for lack of funds. Beer with ID.
ABOUT THE FILM
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. She became one of the most famously outspoken feminist icons, a cultural lightning rod. Her critics wished she would just shut-up, and her fans hoped she never would. So in 2005, when Hanna stopped shouting, many wondered why. Through 20 years of archival footage* and intimate interviews with Hanna, THE PUNK SINGER takes viewers on a fascinating tour of contemporary music and offers a never-before-seen view into the life of this fearless leader.
