Upcoming films are:

Nov. 15 – “The Punk Singer” (2003) is a documentary about the feminist and punk singer Kathleen Hanna. She was a central figure in the riot grrrl movement. Hanna wanted the story of punk to be told from the female perspective, and that is what this film does.

Nov. 22 – “Maiden” (2018) is the story of Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, who becomes the skipper of the first-ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World sailing race in 1989.
