My dear friend Sara Marcus just released an amazing book called “Girls to the Front” about the Riot Grrl movement and I am so happy that it exists for a thousand reasons.
Please check it out if you haven’t already. I am stunned by its scope of intelligence and diplomacy covering such an emotional and somewhat turbulent period.
For five years, as Sara worked on this book, we talked periodically about the influence of Riot Grrl on our lives. These conversations really helped me become more aware of its presence in informing the direction of my life and its only been until recently that I can honestly say I wouldn’t have become a filmmaker without its influence.
When it came time to promote the book, I proposed doing something a little different than the now somewhat traditional “book trailer” so we sent out a call for people to make web-cams answering three questions: “Who are you ?”, “How did you first come into Riot Grrl ?” and ” How did it inform your life ?”
The second half of this past summer was me cutting these responses together.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
