Grrrl love and revolution Riot grrrl NYC 2011

Abby Moser, Bikini Kill (Musical group), Double Zero (Musical group), Tribe 8 (Musical group), Team Dresch (Musical group) , and Women Make Movies (Firm)

"Despite the intense media interest in Riot Grrrl, very little video documentation of this ... facet of feminist and pop culture history exists. This is due in part to a decision by Riot Grrrls to no longer engage with the mainstream media in response to stories that trivialized the movement while appropriating the term 'riot grrrl' to sell everything from perfume to t-shirts to the Spice Girls. It was also due to a desire by Riot Grrrls to make their own media and culture. Filmmaker Abby Moser was both a participant and an observer of Riot Grrrl NYC. Between 1993 and 1996 she shot over 100 hours of original footage of Riot Grrrl meetings and events, and interviews with individual members ... In 1998 two rough cuts of the film (18 min. and 40 min.) were completed and screened ...

Zipper "[A] chronicle of the efforts to redevelop an iconic American landmark. On a small rented lot in the heart of Coney Island's gritty amusement district, Eddie Miranda proudly operates a 38-year-old carnival ride called the Zipper. When an ambitious real estate mogul sets his sights on the lot and the surrounding property, circumstances force Miranda, his ride, and many of Coney Island's eclectic small businesses to leave. Behind the scenes, a high-stakes power struggle between the developer and the City of New York takes place. Both see the redevelopment of Coney Island's waterfront real estate as a lucrative opportunity. They lock horns when the City denounces the developer's glitzy vision of condos and shopping, and ironically, hatches its own grand scheme to transform the area with the promise of housing and retail. Four years in the making, Zipper covers the politics behind-the-scenes as the city first proposes a seaside rezoning that would set aside 15 acres for amusements - and then months later reduces the amusement area plan to 9 acres.
