DOCUMENTARY: DON'T NEED YOU (2006)

“Don’t need you” is a documentary film that tells the story of the origins of Riot Grrrl in the American independent music scene of the 1990s, and how this feminist movement evolved into a revolutionary underground network of education and self-awareness through music, writing, activism, and women-friendly community.

+ Guest Speaker: Dr Julia Downes (Durham University). 

Julia is a specialist in contemporary queer feminist activist music cultures in the UK including riot grrrl, Ladyfest and grassroots collectives.  You can read her recently published article, 'The Expansion of Punk Rock: riot grrl challenges to gender power relations in British indie music subcultures', HERE.
