Just got this very ’90s-womanly press release and thought I’d pass it along…
RADICAL ACT a documentary about women who rock, coming in September.
A Million Movies a Minute is proud to announce its latest release RADICAL ACT. This feature-length documentary covers the contributions made by women in the 1990s indie rock scene and features Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre), Toshi Reagon, Gretchen Phillips, Melissa York (Team Dresch), Kim Coletta (Jawbox, co-founder of DeSoto Records) and more!
In the summer of 1995, filmmaker Tex Clark traveled around the country to interview female musicians, journalists and historians about how their sexual and gender identity impacted their lives and informed their work. RADICAL ACTcaptures a moment in indie rock history and speaks to the universal experience of finding your voice in an indifferent and occasionally hostile world.
RADICAL ACT is both a historical document and a celebration of the artistic and political contributions of these artists to a larger movement and legacy by creating their own subculture. Erin Donovan, founder of A Million Movies a Minute stated, “It’s incredible how much things have changed in 15 years. The film serves as a reminder of how much women’s access in independent music as well as pay tribute to the women who knocked down those barriers.”
Release date: September 21st, 2010.
DVD Extras include: Director commentary with Tex Clark.
