The Punk Singer15

GFT, 12 Rose Street, Glasgow

Friday 23–Thursday 29 May

Kathleen Hanna, feminist activist and founder of key ‘riot grrrl’ acts such as Bikini Kill and Le Tigre, led the charge against the sexist and heteronormative oppression of the music industry from the early 1990s until mid-2000s, when she disappeared from the public eye. In this enlightening and inspirational new documentary, director Sini Anderson (herself a performance artist and poet) shines a light on the singer, delving into her legacy – created not only through her music, but also through her activism, rebellious spirit and ability to stand up against a system she saw as broken.
