  • Jollies

    1990. USA. Directed by Sadie Benning. Shot with a Pixelvision camera, Benning’s short film is a chronicle of her crushes and kisses, tracing the development of her nascent sexuality. Addressing the camera with an air of seduction and romance, Benning allows the viewer a sense of her anxiety and delight as she comes to realize her lesbian identity. 11 min.

  • Belladonna

    1989. USA. Directed by Beth B, Ida Applebroog. A chilling look at violence and the family, Belladonna includes recitations of statements by convicted child murderer Joel Steinberg and Nazi “death doctor” Joseph Mengele, and case studies from Freud’s “A Child is Being Beaten.” 25 min.

  • Grrrl Love and Revolution: Riot Grrrl NYC

    2010. USA. Directed by Abby Moser. From 1993 through 1998, Moser documented the underground feminist “riot grrrl” movement, a loose collection of bands and zines that used fiery rhetoric to address rape, domestic abuse, sexuality, and female empowerment. The film charts the development of riot grrrl in New York City over the course of three years. 60 min.
