Kickstarter Campaign to Finish Kathleen Hanna Documentary

Sini Anderson, director of the forthcoming documentary on Kathleen Hanna, The Punk Singer , has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to finish the film.

The campaign has almost reach it’s initial $44,000 goal for editing and additional donations will be used for color correction and sound mixing. Rewards for supporters include copies of Kathleen’s old zines and even a chance to have a room in your home redesigned by her. See the campaign page and video here.

Credited as a founder of the third wave of feminism and Riot Grrrl – Hanna has been a seminal radical activist, musician, and cultural icon for over twenty years. She’s also been a lightening rod for controversy, and a famously private person. Five years ago, she disappeared from the public eye, and is only now re-emerging. The film combines twenty years of archival footage and an intimate look at four consecutive seasons of Hanna’s present life, to tell the story of what happened, and who she is now.  The film has been shot but now needs editing, sound mixing, etc.
