Pre-Hui Events

Films, food and feminism… and rock!

GIRLS ROCK!!

Friday 26th March, doors open 7pm
Koha/$2 donation entry
at WEA 59 Gloucester Street (opposite CoCA Gallery)


ALL WELCOME!!
There'll be time for questions and discussion about the film, the camp, and the Aotearoa Anarcha-Feminist Hui.
Also there'll be a stall with ace crafts and zines for sale cheap - so bring some coins if that sounds like your thing!

About the film:

At Rock 'n' Roll Camp, girls ranging in age from eight to 18 are taught
that it's OK to sweat like a pig, scream like a banshee, wail on their
instruments with complete and utter abandon, and that "it is 100% okay
to be exactly who you are."

The girls have a week to select a band, an instrument they may have
never played before, and write a song. In between, they are taught by
indie rock legends (such as Carrie Brownstein from Sleater-Kinney)
various lessons of empowerment from self-defense to anger management. At
the end of the week, all the bands perform a concert for over 700 people.

The film follows several campers: Laura, a Korean adoptee obsessed by
death metal; Misty, who is emerging from a life of meth addiction,
homelessness and gang activity; and Amelia, an eight-year-old who writes experimental rock songs about her dog Pipi. What happens to the girls as they are given a temporary reprieve from being sexualized, analyzed and pressured to conform is truly moving and revolutionary.

About AFEM2010

AFEM2010 is a hui (to be held over easter weekend near Wellington) for
women, trans and genderqueer folks who want to eradicate all forms of
oppression. This year's hui has a special focus on racism and
decolonisation.
