Set to music by Bikini Kill, an all-girl band from Washington, Girlpower is a raucous vision of what it means to be a radical girl in the 90s. Benning relates her personal rebellion against school, family, and female stereotypes as a story of personal freedom, telling how she used to model like Matt Dillon and skip school to go on adventures alone.

  • Sadie BenningSadie Benning

    Born in 1973 in Wisconsin. Sadie Benning is a lesbian video artist who has created provocative work since she was 15 years old using a Pixelvision toy camera. Many of her video pieces are coming of age stories about her own experiences and longings as a young lesbian teenager. Evoking in turn playful seduction and painful honesty, Benning’s floating, close-up camera functions as her intimate revelations and definition of evocative experimental form. Her filmography includes Me & Rubyfruit (1989), Living Inside (1989), Jollies (1990), A Place Called Lovely (1991), It Wasn’t Love (1992), German Song (1995) and For Baby (2000).
