SQIFF 2019
A Girl’s Band

Sat 5 October 2019

From 80s punk to modern day synth pop, rocking Argentinian queer women artists are chronicled in A Girl’s Band by bassist turned filmmaker, Marilina Giménez.

Her band YiLet broke up long ago but Giménez still has access to dozens of musicians who are ready to speak their truths about partying on the road, sexual harassment, and the recognised truth that any men in ‘girl bands’ ruin the whole vibe. Veteran bands like The She-Devils get the mosh pits going, while newcomers Chocolate Remix and Miss Bolivia reinvent reggaeton and pop. These women also double as badass activists fighting for safe and legal abortions whilst being determined to make an indelible mark on the stomping girl-led music scene in Argentina.

In association with Girls Rock Glasgow with an introduction by Sarah Glass from band The Fnords.
