Lost Grrrls: Riot Grrrl in Los Angeles

Photo by Claudia Marcela Coy of Gloria Lucas 


Lost Grrrls traces the roots and evolution of a vibrant local feminist culture that defied the mass media spun stereotypes of riot grrrl and used punk rock to build solidarity with aligned movements.

The Story

Lost Grrrls is a documentary film that explores the diverse feminist punk culture of riot grrrl and other united groups in Los Angeles, California. This is what happens when people work towards the common goal of liberation of all people. In Los Angeles, there is unity between riot grrrls, chicana punks, Black Panthers, peace punks, racial justice activists, animal rights activists, Food Not Bombs and LGBTQ activists.
