March 7: The Punk Singer at the Arlene Francis Center

Posted By on Wed, Mar 5, 2014 at 11:07 AM

Celebrating this year's International Women’s Day, local radio wild cards KWTF are screening the 2013 documentary film The Punk Singer. The film, directed by Sini Anderson, follows the rise and career of outspoken innovator Kathleen Hanna, lead singer of the punk band Bikini Kill and the dance-rock outfit Le Tigre. As a leading voice in a newly empowered feminist movement in punk music, Hanna became the face of the “riot grrrl” movement. The Punk Singer premiered at the South by Southwest music festival and garnered wide ranging acclaim for its frank and challenging look at Hanna’s lightning rod of a life. The Punk Singer screens Friday, March 7, at the Arlene Francis Center. 99 W. Sixth St., Santa Rosa. 7pm. $10.
