An 18 minute explosion of fringe feminism and print media, The Grrlyshow is a powerful and rebellious message from new voices often left unheard. Kara Herold examines the girly Zine revolution and culture in such a way that the film intellectually and stylistically addresses anyone’s question concerning whether or not feminism has reached it’s 3rd wave: the postmodern. By interweaving head-shot interviews, clips from the zines and 1950’s television-esque vignettes, Herold clearly illustrates feminism’s ability to exist subversively within a system that generally doesn’t give women their own voice. The Grrlyshow successfully brings to the surface alternative voices and projects that are vital to the continuation and expansion of feminism. An excellent video for mass communication, women’s studies and pop culture courses. (WMM Film & Video Catalog)
