Product description

Product Description

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.

As far as music documentaries go this was one of the more informative ones. I had heard tracks by Bikini Kill and Le Tigre on various new wave compilations I had purchased over many years, what I didn't know about was the person behind that voice. I have to say I was surprised and enthralled by who this girl was, and I feel that I missed out on something so important for so many people. Not to mention lymes disease which I knew nothing of. The whole story from beginning to end was a fascinating and informative one. Kathleen deserves so much more recognition than I think she receives currently.

"The Punk Singer" about Kathleen Hanna, a highly talented woman of many talents including singer and writer is truly inspiring. The context in which she emerged was of a community of very brave American teenage women with an admirably strong sense of identity to give words to their frustrations with a sexist era. It certainly didn't get any easier when her first major group, Bikini Kill obtained both recognition and attention from the media.
Most shocking was the hostility to a strong female figure that didn't play rock star but sought to empower her female audience / compatriots to be strong. She was rightfully wary of mind games the media would play and she did the best that could be done.
Most poignant was her difficulty in accepting help because she had a strong lifelong sense of helping others. The film hints at how badly she was let down by the chaotic American medical system so that her Lyme's disease was diagnosed too late.
This is a message of hope and the DVD extras are interesting vignettes that shouldn't be missed.

Excellent bio. Focusing on the origins of the riotgrrrl movement and KHs emotional state while stuffing through an unknown debilitating illness while in Le Tigre.
