Film: Girls Rock! The Movie
Watch a screening about Rock ’n’ Roll Camp, where girls ages 8–18 form bands, write songs, and perform in front of a 750-member audience.
“The act of picking up a guitar and making some noise becomes a life-changing experience in ‘Girls Rock!’ ...every girl between the ages of 8 and 18 should be required to check it out.”—Chicago Sun-Times
While exploring how to be rockers in Portland, Oregon, campers learn to appreciate that “it is 100% okay to be exactly who you are.” Instructors and musicians, such as Carrie Brownstein from band Sleater-Kinney, lead various lessons of empowerment from self-defense to anger management.
After the screening, stick around for a Q&A with staff from Girls Rock! DC.
Directed by Arne Johnson and Shane King (2008, 90 min.). This film is rated PG. Presented in conjunction with Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power.
