Open to all 15-25 year olds
Join us for a screening and discussion of the cult youtube documentary 'Dirty Girls' (1996).
"In Spring of 1996, my senior year of high school, I documented a group of 8th grade girls who were notorious for their crass behavior and allegedly bad hygiene...." - Michael Lucid, Director
Shot in 1996 and edited in 2000, this is a short documentary about a group of 13-year-old riot grrrls who were socially ostracised at school by their peers and upperclassmen. Everyone in the schoolyard held strong opinions about these so-called "dirty girls," and meanwhile the "dirty girls" themselves aimed to get their message across by distributing their zine across campus.
*Content Warnings: some discussion of rape and sexual assault
