New Documentary On Women In Punk Music

Came across this trailer for a new documentary on women in the punk music scene. It's been made by the guys “From The Back Of The Room” production. So what’s the documentary about?;
‘Many people have the impression that the Riot Grrrl movement in the mid-90s was the end-all, be-all of female involvement in DIY punk. This is definitely not the case! Plenty of amazing ladies prior to this era paved the way for it, and plenty of amazing ladies continue to help keep DIY together today. This documentary chronicles the past 30 years of female involvement in DIY punk, and has interviews with over 30 women from across the country, ages 17 to 40. Race, gender, sexuality, motherhood, class, and activism are all addressed in this film, giving a more complete picture of how these women participate in the DIY community, and how it affects their daily lives’.
It contains video footage and interviews from the likes of Kathleen Hanna from Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, Slade from Tribe 8, Allison Wolfe from Bratmobile, Kirsten from Naked Aggression, The Ladies from Witch Hunt, Tobia from Look Back and many more. The documentary was produced, shot and directed by Amy Oden and co-produced by Brian Kruglak.
I would like to see the full version, as it look very interesting and gives a great insite into this particular music scene that I have very little knowledge on.

I also found more video's showcasing Women in punk for all you lovers of punk music via Louder Than War and Youtube
