‘None of us can do anything right but we all do it all day long!’
‘None of us can do anything right but we all do it all day long!’ Katrina Del Mar’s explosive Girl Gangs trilogy rolls into Hackney Picture House for a special screening in association with the London Rollergirls, who will be bringing a whole lot of attitude, a Q&A and a few derby themed shorts. We watch Del Mar’s lady-loving, leather-clad cast keeping the feminist/punk/DIY spirit alive as they cause an unpredictable ruckus through New York state. Returning from a mysterious accident that left her wheelchair bound, Crank is forced to click up quick when her gang abandons her in ‘Hell On Wheels: Gang Girls Forever!’ Will she get revenge? Two orphan sisters start a turf war on the beach in ‘Surf Gang: Ruffnecks Vs. Ungratefuls’ and four girl gangs clash and rumble through the Lower East Side in ‘Gang Girls 2000.’ Girl-on-girl solidarity lies at the heart of this trilogy. If you can roll with it, you’re in!
