"Radical Act is a documentary on women in rock. Made in 1995 the film screened at Outfest in Los Angeles and appeared in 1999 as part of Miranda July’s “Break My Chainletter” collection.
The film is both a celebration of some of our favorite rockers and how they came to be that way, as well as snapshot of a specific time in political history. Each woman addresses how politicization of sexual and gender identity has impacted their life and work."
