Summary/Review: "Despite the intense media interest in Riot Grrrl, very little video documentation of this ... facet of feminist and pop culture history exists. This is due in part to a decision by Riot Grrrls to no longer engage with the mainstream media in response to stories that trivialized the movement while appropriating the term 'riot grrrl' to sell everything from perfume to t-shirts to the Spice Girls. It was also due to a desire by Riot Grrrls to make their own media and culture. Filmmaker Abby Moser was both a participant and an observer of Riot Grrrl NYC. Between 1993 and 1996 she shot over 100 hours of original footage of Riot Grrrl meetings and events, and interviews with individual members ... In 1998 two rough cuts of the film (18 min. and 40 min.) were completed and screened ... [This final cut of the film] provides an in-depth investigation of the movement while it was happening and from the perspective of an entire Riot Grrrl chapter."--
