For well over a decade, from confrontational DIY punk of Bikini Kill and the riot grrrl movement, to the electronic pop perfection of Le Tigre - Hanna’s rally cry against the sexist, heteronormative music scene proved a source of constant encouragement until she disappeared from the public eye with no explanation. Anderson’s film sheds light on her need to retreat, while offering a perfect introduction to this extraordinary feminist icon. Welcome back Kathleen!
