Lost Grrrls: Riot Grrrl in Los Angeles
directed by Vega Darling
Riot grrrl is a feminist movement and music genre largely credited for generating third wave feminism out of the punk rock moshpits in the Pacific Northwest and Washington, D.C. In Los Angeles, riot grrrls took the concepts shared through music and zines and applied them to a diverse culture. In Los Angeles, there is solidarity between riot grrrls, chicana punks, black panthers, peace punks, racial justice activists, animal rights activists, food not bombs and LGBT activists. This is what happens when people work towards the common goal of liberation for all people. Lost Grrrls: Riot Grrrl in Los Angeles documents this scene.
Grrrl Love and Revolution: Riot Grrrl NYC
directed by Abby Moser
Riot Grrrl’s utopian call for a grrrl revolution catalyzed a feminist youth movement by encouraging grrrls to produce their own music, performance and politics. Grrrl Love shows what is possible when a group of grrrls band together in the belief that they "can, and will, change the world for real” (Riot Grrrl Manifesto).
