Def. Worth a Watch: Dirty Girls (1996/2000/2013)

Shot in 1996 and edited in 2000, this is a short documentary about a group of 13-year-old riot grrrls in Los Angeles who were socially ostracized at their 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. Directed by Michael Lucid. Music: “Batmobile” by Liz Phair.

I respect the fact that creator, as well as the members of the “dirty girls”, are revisiting the events, arena and issues shown in this video. Check out the video’s page for updates. I know I will.
