Kathleen Hanna's rousing vocals as lead singer of Bikini Kill and later Le Tigre have captivated audiences around the world. The Punk Singer follows Hanna's story, charting her meteoric rise to become one of the leading figures in the punk feminist movement 'Riot Grrrl' that swept across North America in the early 90s. Although 'Riot Grrrl' splintered out its influence has nevertheless continued. While Hanna may have been a reluctant leader she undoubtedly helped create a world where young women grow up believing they can achieve anything.

Director Sini Anderson expertly mixes interviews with the singer, her friends and husband Adam Horovitz of the Beastie Boys with stunning archive footage. From Bikini Kill's sudden popularity to Hanna's mysterious decision to quit music in 2005, The Punk Singer is an intimate and compelling film about a unique artist and activist.
