Kick off your March Break with Rebel Girl Halifax Rock Camp and Kathleen Hanna!

Rebel Girl Halifax Rock Camp (in partnership with NSCAD’s Radical Forms Foundation class) present to you the Atlantic Canadian premiere of The Punk Singer – a powerful documentary about the life of Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, Julie Ruin).

Directed by Sini Anderson, The Punk Singer is a look at the life of activist, musician, and cultural icon Kathleen Hanna, who formed the punk band Bikini Kill and was a pioneer of the “riot grrrl” movement of the 1990s.

Proceeds from the screening will go to support Rebel Girl Halifax Rock Camp, a non-profit organization offering music-related workshops and an annual summer camp to young women who identify as female, trans* or are gender non-conforming.

Rebel Girl Halifax Rock Camp will host their second Rock Camp August 2014 (Aug 5-9 for ages 8-12, Aug 11-16 for ages 12 and up) where local female musicians will lead workshops, band practices, instrument instruction and foster positive and lasting relationships with campers. Incidentally, the camp name is inspired by Kathleen Hanna’s song “Rebel Girl.”

2013 camp compilation featuring the hit songs from Bad Apples, MMELTZ, Psych and Fuzzy Does’nt will be available for a special price of $5 for movie ticket holders.
