The Punk Singer

I saw this at DocNYC tonight. The first Julie Ruin record and Real Fiction by The Fakes  are two of my all time favourites, and I used to listen to a lot of riot-grrl. But the film, quite apart from being about someone I find interesting, was really good. The structure was sensibly organised around the bands Hanna was in. It put the music she made in an accurate, meaningful social context.
