About:
A candid look at the influential band.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Grab your backstage pass and take a visceral immersion into the 1990s with one of its seminal grunge punk bands, L7. Pigeonholed as an all-female band despite their every effort, L7’s fierce members struggled against music industry and fan expectations even as they contended with questions of celebrity and success. Assembling a dynamic combination of never-before-seen homevideo footage, candid interviews and raucous performances, director Sarah Price explores the rise and fall of the influential band.
