Lydia Lunch: The War is Never Over. 2020. USA. Directed by Beth B. With Lydia Lunch. In English. 75 min.
This is the first career-spanning documentary retrospective of Lydia Lunch’s confrontational, acerbic, and always electric artistry. Lunch has forged a lifetime of music and spoken-word performance devoted to the utter right of any woman to indulge, to seek pleasure, and to say “fuck you!” as loud as any man. In this time of endless attacks on women, of ceaseless war, this is a rallying cry to acknowledge the only thing that is going to bring us together: ART…as the universal salve to all of our traumas.
