THE PUNK SINGER

KathleenHannaBioDoc by Sini Anderson about the life of ground-breaking musician Kathleen Hanna (a key figure in the Riot Grrl movement).

For me this is a superlative doc & I saw it twice, whereas my husband Rich wanted more “Follow the Money” info (e.g., Did Hanna’s 1st group Bikini Kill sell any albums? If so, what was their revenue like? Did Hanna’s 2nd group Le Tigre make money on tour? If so, how much?)

I guess this info would have been interesting, but I didn’t find it necessary. Rich & I both agree that story is well-told, with fascinating details about the 90s & implications for what awaits upfront feminist artists of every time & place. (JLH: 4/5)
