Dir. Beth B

The first career-spanning documentary to cover Lydia Lunch’s compelling, confrontational and always electric artistry. New York City’s preeminent No Wave icon from the late ’70s, Lunch has spent a lifetime creating music and spoken word performances that reaffirm the right of any woman to indulge, seek pleasure, and to say “fuck you!” as loud as any man. Beth B.’s no-holds-barred profile of a unique artist is also a rallying cry for art’s power to build inspiration out of trauma.
Directed by a woman, written by a woman and starring a significant woman.
