This new music doc is notable for its prominent female voicewhich makes sense given its subject: Bikini Kill and Le Tigre frontwoman Kathleen Hanna. The feminist icon has been making waves for the past twenty years, since the start of her empowered female band—an integral part of the punk "riot grrrl" movement of the '90s and the female counterpart to Nirvana. The SXSW darling is an emotional inside look at Hanna's ups and downs, featuring the insights Adam Horovitz, Joan Jett, Carrie Brownstein and more.
