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.

Erica Dunn (Mixing Up The Medicine) and Grace Kindellan (Wet Lips) present The Punk Singer on International Women’s Day, Wednesday, March 8 at the Spotted Mallard, 314 Sydney Road, Brunswick. DJ sets from Erica Dunn and Grace Kindellan and dinner from 7pm. Introduction at 8.15pm and screening at 8:30pm. Running time 82 mins approx. Tickets through Moshtix.
