GRRRL: 25 Years Of Riot Grrrl!

GRRRL: 25 Years of Riot Grrrl  is a musically fueled, DIY, feminist, feature length documentary film.

Out of the culture of the 1990’s Pacific Northwest independent music scene, riot grrrl established third wave feminism and brought girl power to the masses, proving that music can change the world.

Over the past 25 years, riot grrrl has cultivated a vibrant culture that has created music, film, zines, and a political stir. Vega Darling's GRRRL: 25 Years of Riot Grrrl is a story about riot grrrl told by riot grrrls. GRRRL documents riot grrrl and it's impact on culture. The Indiegogo campaign for the film features rewards including a multimedia zine, video, and music compilation with tracks from Frightwig, Hand Off Gretel, Husbands N Knives, The Potential Lunatics, Louise Distras, Trap Girl, Big Joanie, Not Right?!, Clitorus Rex, Drown the Noise, Nicky Click, and more! Rare merchandise including unreleased early riot grrrl spoken word records, signed records, rare riot grrrl records, record label grab bags, zines, stickers, buttons, t-shirts, rare posters, vintage collectibles, and sex positive treats including a peak into the director's collection of vintage toys.

So far, the project GRRRL includes an in-production feature-length documentary film GRRRL: 25 Years Of Riot Grrrl, and two films - Lost Grrrls: Riot Grrrl In Los Angeles (2016), and An Excerpt From the Forthcoming Feature Documentary, GRRRL (2013). GRRRL: 25 Years Of Riot Grrrl  began pre-production research in 2007 and has been in-production since 2012.  We expect to release the feature length documentary in early 2017.
