Anna is coming out, not as gay but… as a revolutionary! At first a shy, fresh-out-of-high-school lesbian, Anna lives at home with her parents in a loving, gay-is-OK kind of family and begrudgingly works at a plastic surgery clinic. One night however, Anna’s world is turned upside down when she catches a one-woman army spray-painting the clinic in an act of defiance. The culprit is Sadie, a recruiting member of the Guerrilla Girls-esque Clits in Action (C(i)A), whose goal is to raise awareness of how bad plastic surgery is for women. Anna develops an instant attraction to this sexy and raw rebel girl, and eagerly joins the (C(i)A) to start her rollercoaster ride from the meek mouse to bona fide bad-ass. Full of mosh pits, power fists and a soundtrack of Le Tigre, Peaches, Sleater Kinney and Bikini Kill, Itty Bitty Titty Committee is a rocking love song to the head rush of sex, freedom and rebellion that occurs when an everyday girl discovers her own strength and the righteous indignation needed to actively change the world.

+ Totally Girl Powered, Dir Val Phoenix, UK, 2013, 8mins (World Premiere)
